Join us in the Upstairs Cafe at our Rittenhouse Store for a special talk and book signing with local champion, Judy Wicks. Judy will be speaking about her life and signing copies of her new memoir, Good Morning, Beautiful Business.
Refreshments featuring local cheeses and craft beers will be available. $5 suggested donation, proceeds will benefit Fair Food Philly.
Good Morning, Beautiful Business is a memoir about the evolution of an entrepreneur who would not only change her neighborhood, but would also change her world—helping communities far and wide create local living economies that value people, nature and place more than money.
Wicks recounts her life as a girl coming of age in the sixties, living a year in an Eskimo village, cofounding the Free People’s store, her accidental entry into the restaurant business, the creation of the White Dog Cafe and her eventual role as a pioneer in the localization movement. Passionate, fun, and inspirational, Good Morning, Beautiful Business explores the way entrepreneurs, as well as consumers, can follow both mind and heart, cultivate lasting relationships with each other and the planet, and build a new compassionate economy that will bring us greater security, as well as happiness.
