Jonathan Gold

In Memoriam: This year’s LitFest Pasadena is dedicated to Jonathan Gold, Pulitzer Prize winning food critic, who was a frequent participant and supporter of ours. He was also a contributor to our Literature for Life online publication and teacher resource, which brings authors into classrooms in Los Angeles public schools.
