News for a new school year (esp if you aren't going to the Notre Dame game 9/10)

    Saturday, September 10, 2011, 6 -11 pm, Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market, Kerrytown, 315 Detroit Street, Ann Arbor http://homegrownfestival.org/

  • The next day, in the same will be the annual Kerrytown BookFest, which doesn't forget local foodies when creating its events. At Hollanders, you'll find a lecture-demo on Tasting and Touring Michigan’s Homegrown Food (noon) by author Jaye Beeler and photographer Dianne Burdick, and discussion of Ma Baseema: Chaldean Middle Eastern Cooking with a Chaldean Flair (2 p.m.) with editor Jane Shallal. Full schedule at

    Doesn't that sound like a good way to pass the historic day of 9/11, in the company of community?
