Brattle Premieres Local Indie Film Shot in Brookline

Booked: Jeremy Sewall

This Saturday, 12/13, at 6 p.m. at the Brookline Booksmith, 279 Harvard Street, Boston Chef Jeremy Sewall, the Chef and owner of Brookline’s Lineage restaurant, Island Creek Oyster Bar and the "workingman's oyster bar" Row 34 will be signing his first cookbook.
