$30 ticket includes admission, the book Ship Watch, complimentary hors d’oeuvres (recipe from author’s cookbook), and one glass of champagne. 


Ship Watch, released December 1, is Jonathon Scott Barrett’s first work of fiction – and is a colorful Southern saga filled with family theatrics, exes and excess, and set in Savannah, Sea Island, Highlands, Buckhead, and….Tybee. Johnathon will talk about how and why he began creating his culinary anthologies, which, with his love of storytelling, consequently led to his latest literary work.


Characters drawn from the loom by the family’s matriarch, Grand Martha, create a multi-generational tapestry that includes the misfortunes of betrayal and divorce, alongside redemption and rediscovery of second love. With an encompassing sense of place and characters both believable and extraordinary, Ship Watch is the bittersweet and often comical “hard-to-put-down” book for the new year.


Johnathon Scott Barrett is a seventh-generation Georgian with a deep appreciation for the South’s literary and culinary traditions. He is the author of three acclaimed cookbooks, which critics hailed for their entertaining stories and extensive recipes. Barrett is a CPA and has worked as a nonprofit executive for the past three decades; he is the director of development for the State Botanical Garden of Georgia at UGA. He splits his time between two Georgia homes: Winterville and Savannah. Ship Watch is his first novel.
