Book and tributes mark centenary of Julia Child’s birth
Eight years after Julia Child died, the books and tributes keep coming. An all-day symposium on Sept. 21 will focus on three “sites” that Child inhabited, learned from, and influenced: Cambridge, post-World War II Paris, and national television. Among the speakers will be Bob Spitz, whose biography of Child, “Dearie,” was published by Alfred A. Knopf last week. Registration will open Aug. 15, the centenary of her birth.
