BETH M. HOWARD - Making Piece


Veteran Journalist & Pie Evangelist
will speak about & sign
Making Piece:
A Memoir of Love,
Loss and Pie.


We'll enjoy complimentary pie at this event courtesy of the wonderful folks at Austin's own
Pie Fixes Everything!

Peach, Strawberry Rhubarb, Cherry, Choclate Pecan....oh, this is going to be a good, good night!

When journalist Beth M. Howard's young husband dies suddenly, she packs up the RV he left behind and hits the American highways. At every stop along the way—whether filming a documentary or handing out free slices on the streets of Los Angeles—Beth uses pie as a way to find purpose. Howard eventually returns to her Iowa roots and creates the perfect synergy between two of America's greatest icons—pie and the American Gothic House, the little farmhouse immortalized in Grant Wood's famous painting, where she now lives and runs the Pitchfork Pie Stand. Making Piece powerfully shows how one courageous woman triumphs over tragedy.

Beth M. Howard has been a journalist for more than 20 years, specializing in personality profiles, adventure travel and outdoor sports. In 2001, she quit a lucrative web-producing job to bake pies at a gourmet deli in Malibu, California. She started her popular blog, The World Needs More Pie, in 2007, and it has been featured in publications worldwide. She lives in Eldon, Iowa. Visit her at
