Before the Food Network and Epicurious, there was Gourmet Magazine, curator of sophisticated dining ideas, hosting trends, and the lowdown on culinary tourism. Now, five years after the magazine’s end, one issue from each of its 69 years of publication (1941-2009) is on display on the seventh floor of the Hatcher Graduate Library—through Dec. 1. And on November 18, from 4 to 6pm, Jan Longone, adjunct curator of culinary history at U-M Library, will discuss the exhibit The Life and Death of Gourmet—The Magazine of Good Living.

Allow time to view the exhibit before the lecture. Hatcher Graduate Library 913 S. University Avenue, Ann Arbor, room 100,
