Last week we posted a lot on Facebook and Twitter about the book launch for Well, Shut My Mouth! The Sweet Potatoes Restaurant Cookbook, by Stephanie L. Tyson. And it must have worked–we stopped counting guests at the event after we hit 170. Stephanie and her partner Vivian Joiner must have signed books for a solid two hours. If they didn’t have carpal tunnel before, they must be feeling it now.
But that didn’t keep them from getting back to work at Sweet Potatoes the next day or talking to NPR’s All Things Considered this week. You can catch Stephanie and Vivian discussing what it’s like running their restaurant in today’s economy here.
A big thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate with us. If you missed it, books are still available at your local bookstore, through online booksellers, at Sweet Potatoes restaurant, and at blairpub.com.
