Ingredients of a Creative Life: A Conversation with Questlove

Friday, October 18  ·  12:30 - 2:30 p.m.

André and Clara Mertens Theatre & Schedlfhaudt Art Gallery, Arnold Bernhard Arts and Humanities Center

Festival Chair Tom Healy will sit down with his friend, Questlove, for a discussion about his passions - music and food - and how creativity infuses his work as a GRAMMY Award-winning musical artist, producer, culinary entrepreneur, designer, and New York Times best-selling author. Questlove’s new cookbook is Mixtape Potluck: A Dinner Party for Friends, Their Recipes, and the Songs They Inspire.

The first 500 students to arrive at the event will receive a free copy of Mixtape Potluck. A book signing will take place immediately following the main event.

UB IDs will be required at the door.
