Writer’s Block Bookstore, in partnership with Quantum Leap Winery, is delighted to announce oenologist and MIT Journalism Fellow Kevin Begos as part of our Wine ◊ Wisdom ◊ Words series. Join us on Thursday, July 26th at 6:30PM for a discussion, Q&A and Kevin will sign his book as we dive into the history, flavors, and origins of wine.

About the book: Discover the hidden life of wine with journalist Kevin Begos as he embarks on a ten-year journey to seek the origins of wine. He unearths a whole world of forgotten grapes, each with distinctive tastes and aromas, as well as the archaeologists, geneticists, chemists—even a paleobotanist—who are deciphering wine down to molecules of flavor. Begos offers readers drinking suggestions that go far beyond the endless bottles of Chardonnay and Merlot found in most stores and restaurants. In this viticultural detective story, wine geeks and history lovers alike will discover new tastes and flavors to savor.

About the author: Kevin Begos is a former MIT Knight Science Journalism Fellow whose stories and research have appeared in major newspapers and other publications, including Scientific AmericanHarper'sSalon, the Christian Science MonitorUSA Today, and The New York Times. He reviews books for the Associated Press and is a former AP correspondent.
