As a child growing up in Milford, Michigan, Lisa Ludwinski had three ambitions in life: to be a baker, a hair cutter, and a movie star… Boy oh boy, are we pie lovers lucky!
 
In the autumn of 2012, Ms. Ludwinski started Sister Pie out of the kitchen of her parents’ house. In 2015, after nearly 2.5 years of hard work, crowdfunding, grant applications, and a very dedicated intern, Sister Pie opened its brick and mortar location at Parker and Kercheval to a line out the door. Since then, Sister Pie has been featured in Bon Appetit, the New York Times, Eater, and Bloomberg News. Ms. Ludwinski was recently named a finalist for a 2019 James Beard Award!
 
The Miller Library is excited to welcome Ms. Ludwinski to discuss her 2019 Michigan Notable Award winning book Sister Pie: The Recipes & Stories of a Big-Hearted Bakery in Detroit.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.
