As Andy Williams famously put it, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.” With the holiday season rapidly approaching, families start scrambling to put together a home-cooked meal made specifically to impress in-laws, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and all other family members.

And what better way to find award-winning recipes that will turn the whole family green with envy than to ask Martha Stewart herself?

On Tuesday, Nov. 24 at 6 p.m., Martha Stewart will come to the Fairfield University Downtown Bookstore to promote and sign copies of her newest cookbook, “Martha Stewart’s Appetizers.”

“I didn’t know anything about her coming,” Alec Lurie ‘19 said about Stewart’s upcoming visit. “I’m all in if it means she’s bringing food.”

This cookbook, published by Clarkson Potter, hit stores this past September. It has recipes for over 200 easy-to-make hors d’oeuvres and 30 cocktails and is already a bestseller on Amazon.

“Martha Stewart’s Appetizers” is merely the latest in her long line of bestselling books about cooking, entertaining and decorating. In addition to her acclaimed writings, Stewart was also the host of the Emmy-winning “Martha Stewart Show,” which ran from 2005 until 2012 and is where she talked about many of the same topics of her books.

“I’m excited about her coming right before Thanksgiving because her presence will put me even more in the holiday mood,” said Alyssa Hogan ‘19. “She makes me think of family gatherings because she does crafts and party planning, so it’s perfect for Thanksgiving.”

This is a great opportunity for the town of Fairfield; however, campus closes the day Stewart comes, making it difficult for people going home for Thanksgiving who live far away to stick around for the signing.

Space is very limited for this event, so it is essential to sign up as soon as possible and get to the bookstore early if you want to see Stewart and get a signed copy of her cookbook.
