Hello, newest New York Cork Report correspondent, Peter Conway, here. I’ve learned, as no doubt you have, here at New York Cork Report we are all about New York wine, and the beer and spirits, and of course we’re all about — the New York lifestyle. So, we were delighted to say yes when offered the opportunity to partner with Random House to participate in and sponsor a fabulous New York event occurring this July called “Off the Page” at Basilica in Hudson, NY. Let me tell you a bit about it.

“Off The Page” billed as a Saturday of literary inspiration and fun in the Hudson Valley, is a day of discovery for readers, and a chance for them to find new books on personal style, cooking, wellness, entertaining, and spirituality. And thanks to New York Cork Report along with Hudson-Chatham and Tousey Wineries, some great New York wine. What could be better?

The event has an incredible lineup of notable authors, and if you would like to attend and can sign up by May 10th  we have a special offer for you!  CLICK HERE and use code NYCR for 20% off your ticket when you register by this Sunday, May 10 at 2:59PM ET.”

This is a full day event held in the acclaimed arts and performance venue Basilica Hudson. Your day will begin with a rousing keynote by legendary food critic and bestselling author Ruth Reichl who will share her realizations on the rediscovery of simple pleasures and a preview of her new book, My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes That Changed My Life. I want to taste them all and offer a wine pairing for each. Even breakfast!

For me that alone would be enough. Yet after the keynote you can choose from five different fascinating workshops and other content throughout the day by luminaries such as Gretchen Rubin, The Happiness Project and Happier at Home, Woodstock resident Clark Strand, spiritual writer and former Zen Buddhist monk, as well as celebrated author and artist Lauren Redniss. To name a few. There will be an array of snacks, refreshments, free books and goodies available all day long! After a day of blissful discovery we are sure you will be ready for a great glass of wine. So be sure to come to the New York Cork Report Hudson Valley wine tasting. I look forward to meeting you there.

I hope I have intrigued you enough to CLICK HERE and use code NYCR for 20% off your ticket when you register by this Sunday, May 10 at 2:59PM ET.”
