Nancy Spiller will discuss her new memoir Compromise Cake: Lessons Learned from My Mother's Recipe Box an exploration of Spiller's life in the suburbs of Northern California in the 1960s, learning to cook by her challenging mother's side, as remembered through the recipe box's mid-century and heirloom offerings. It touches on lineage, and industrial changes; it is a meditation on men, women, marriage, community and the nature of compromise.
