During her more than 50 years as an editor at Knopf, Judith Jones helped launch new genres and trends in literature. At the forefront of the cookbook revolution, Jones published the who’s who of food writing, including Edna Lewis, M.F.K. Fisher, Madhur Jaffrey, James Beard, and, most famously, Julia Child. Through her quiet and tenacious work behind the scenes, Jones helped turn these authors into household names and changed the way Americans think about food, cooking, and the culinary diversity. This impact of Jones’ work is celebrated in The Editor by Sara B. Franklin, an intimate view into the mind of a visionary.

Moderated by the New York Times writer Nikita Richardson, Sara B. Franklin will take part in a panel conversation alongside 2023 James Beard Lifetime Achievement Award winner Madhur Jaffrey and seven-time James Beard Award winner Lidia Bastianich, two legendary cookbook authors whose lives and careers were both touched by Judith Jones.

Copies of The Editor by Sara B. Franklin are available for purchase with tickets or at the event from our partners at Kitchen Arts & Letters.
