12:00 PM Mortadella Day All hail Mortadella Day! Celebrating 2000 years of meat-centric history, Officine Buona Forchetta is hosting a traditional Mortadella Day festival Sunday, July 23. Made of lean pork speckled with lumps of lard, Mortadella Day draws thousands each year to the city of Bologna, Italy to sample this storied charcuterie. Seeking to replicate the festival for adventurous foodies, co-owners Mario Cassineri and Matteo Cattaneo are whipping up an exclusive menu featuring the finely sliced specialty on all manner of Italian fare. Imported from the famed samulerie Ferrarini in Casatenovo, Italy, the 120-lb mortadella will be on display in the center of the restaurant, with busy capocuoco's and pizzaiolo's slicing away as guests place their order. Dishes include a focaccia topped with mortadella, provolone, and tomatoes, ravioli with mozzarella and ground mortadella, and a specialty pizza topped with mortadella. In the spirit of community, Officine Buona Forchetta will be donating $2 of every dish sold on Thursday, July 20 to Loma Portal Elementary School.

2:00 PM Book Signing: Private Universe Private Universe is a coming of age novel with a surreal twist, a travelogue, a philosophical exploration of the purpose of life, and an adventure story, with pieces of art as guideposts. Seventeen-year-old Vega Stern meets a seductive outcast and gets sucked into psychedelic, then hard drugs in 1970s Germany. It is the beginning of her psychedelic roller coaster ride through ecstatic highs to hitting rock bottom painfully severs the ties to her first love to escape her dangerous drug habit, and travels through Greece and Israel in search of great art and true meaning, not knowing that her drug use resulted in long lasting consequences. Private Universe is a kaleidoscope of vivid descriptions and unusual travel adventures, but it is primarily a story of survival and self-invention.
