Michael Steinberger just won a James Beard award

chobart-steinbergerJames Beard Foundation Journalism Awards are to food writers what National Asphalt Paving Association’s NAPA awards are to asphalt professionals: public recognition that one is performing at the very pinnacle of one’s craft, whether one’s craft is laying down a thick layer of solid asphalt, or laying down a thick layer of solid journalistic excellence.

While we have yet to land a NAPA award winner (although I believe John Updike was nominated several times), I’m pleased to announce that upcoming speaker Michael Steinberger has just won a James Beard Foundation Journalism Award for a Vanity Fair piece about “the largest case of fine-wine fraud in history.

There’s still time to reserve your spot for Steinberger’s lecture on May 22nd, and/or a wine tasting, featuring wines selected by Kevin Hart of WineCraft, on May 29.  Library members can reserve a spot at both nights for $25 ($30 for non-members) or an individual evening for $15 ($20 for non-members). You can read more about it here.  You’ll need a reservation, though.  Get yours by phone (513.621.0717) or by email.

You can find Michael Steinberger’s wine writing on Slate here and here, and you can follow his Wine Diarist blog here.
