A power lunch – finally!

by Jessie K on November 25, 2013

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI was invited to an informal lunch over the weekend hosted by local NPR reporter-slash-superstar Martha Woodruff (I swear, this woman knows everyone….and her first book publishes this August!) to tout NPR National Arts Reporter Neda Ulaby who was in the area giving a talk at James Madison University for WMRA.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt was so great to link up with all sorts of interesting women in this area involved in the arts. I met writers, professors, bloggers, book fair organizers….it was so great to soak up these ladies’ creative vibes.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYou’re looking at one of two plates I polished off, not including dessert.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI ran into “chicken whisperer” and fellow Lexington author Pat Foreman, author of the awesome chicken book City Chicks. Pat brought along her sidekick “Oprah Hen-free,” who turned out to be the star of the lunch. People flocked around her almost more than they did Neda. (Man, I love a good chicken pun.)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt was soooo great to meet and network with all these amazing women in similar fields as me. Anyone want my business card? Anyone? Anyone?

Thank you for the post. You’ve introduced me to some new people. What’s the meaning behind “Oprah Hen-Free” as the chicken’s name?
