Together with Wordfest, Sidewalk Citizen Bakery is hosting George Saunders at the next Tzavta cultural dinner salon on Sunday, April 9, 7pm (doors open at 6pm). As a valued friend, we want you to be the first to have a chance to purchase tickets to this intimate opportunity to interact with one of the world’s greatest authors in the company of good food and good people. Seating is limited to 60 people, and because this is a Sidewalk Citizen event and not part of Wordfest's program, no passes or discounts apply to this event.

George Saunders is the author of the critically acclaimed short story collections Pastoralia, In Persuasion Nation, and Tenth of December, which was nominated for the National Book Award in 2014. A frequent contributor to The New Yorker, Harper’s, McSweeney’s, and GQ, he has been nominated for seven National Magazine Awards, most recently for his dispatch from the 2016 Presidential campaign, "Who Are All These Trump Supporters." A Guggenheim Fellow and winner of a MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Award, he was elected as a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2014. George Saunders’ much-anticipated first novel, Lincoln in the Bardo, was published in February to widespread critical acclaim and is currently #4 on the New York Times bestseller list.

About the Tzavta Series

“Tzavta” is Sidewalk Citizen Bakery's monthly cultural dinner salon hosting, curators, animators, writers, installers, artists and scientists – the people behind the scenes. The inspiration is (of course) bread: seemingly simple yet inherently complex requiring skill, diligence and dedication to make.

Join us for an intimate, lively talk, devoid of advice about life but filled with information, stories and an open discussion where one is free to ask and learn. The conversation is preceded by dinner create in honour of speakers and based on their inspiration, heritage or passion.
