"The Man Who Changed the Way We Eat: Craig Claiborne and the American Food Renaissance" (Free Press), by Thomas McNamee: Many of us can no longer remember what life was like before arugula and balsamic vinegar became part of the larder, celebrity chefs strutted their stuff on TV and the term "foodie" made its way into common parlance.

BISMARCK – The author of an acclaimed biography of the American journalist and North Dakota native Eric Sevareid (1912-92) will discuss his book Thursday, Nov. 12, at the North Dakota Heritage Center. The program by Raymond A. Schroth, author of “The American Journey of Eric Sevareid,” will begin at 7 p.m. Central Time.
In introducing his choice to replace Justice David Souter on the U.S. Supreme Court, President Obama touted Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s biography. He noted her humble beginnings: she grew up in a housing project in the Bronx; a child of Puerto Rican parents; a father who died when she was nine; a mother who worked six days a week as a nurse so she and her brother could go to Catholic school.
Kaylene Johnson remembers coming to The Dickinson Press newspaper looking for work when she was about 14.
“I knocked on the door and I asked for a job and they sort of sent me packing, I was just a kid,” Johnson recalled.
Now Johnson is an author in demand, thanks to Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s surprise choice of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate.
