If you are looking for Hank Shaw book tour information, well, this is the place. We finally have events, after a year long absence, for obvious reasons. I will be hitting the road as best I can this year to support my latest cookbook, Hook, Line, and Supper, which covers all things fish and seafood, freshwater and salt.
To get you started, here is the virtual book launch conversation I did with April Vokey of Anchored Outdoors and the Book Larder, a cookbook-focused bookstore in Seattle. This talk gives you a good overview of the book, and I answer a ton of reader questions!
Media About the Book
I’ll post some of the media and buzz about Hook, Line, and Supper below, in case you want to learn more about how this book came about, what’s in it, and more.
- A fun profile in Sactown magazine, and another one in Sacramento Magazine. I also got a nice write-up in the magazine Garden & Gun.
- A great Q&A on the book, and fishing in general, with the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
- I did a podcast with National Public Radio on the cookbook, and on the lure of fishing in general, that came out well.
- Some fun television spots, from Birmingham, Alabama, and one from Sacramento.
- My “tunafish sandwich” recipe, tried and true, featured in Leite’s Culinaria
- Here’s an article about pairing fish and seafood with beer that I wrote for Hop Culture.

Chef Amos Watts and I are teaming up again at his restaurant The Fifth String, where Old Major used to be on Tejon Street. Looking like $80 plus tax and tip, which includes a signed copy of the book. Reservations are live! Here is the link to reserve your spot.
Michigan Book Dinner
I’ll be back at Red Haven in Okemos, Michigan (near Lansing), for another book dinner! Every time I’ve done a dinner with these folks it’s been fantastic, and this time should be no different. Call them at (517) 679-6309 for reservations. You can make an online reservation here.
Buffalo Book Dinner
Buffalo, New York
I’ll be back at The Black Sheep with my friend Steve Gedra, and this rare Friday night book dinner will be co-themed for the Bills-Dolphins game that Sunday. No, we won’t be serving marine mammals, but it should be fun nonetheless! Every time I’ve done a dinner with these folks it’s been fantastic, and this time should be no different. You can make your reservations here.
Gloucester Book Signing
I will be signing books and talking fish and seafood at The Bookstore of Gloucester, 61 Main St, from 4 to 6:30 pm. This will be a free event, and we will have lots of books to sell. NOTE: Make sure you email the bookstore at firstname.lastname@example.org or call them at 978/281-1548 to reserve a spot. The bookstore is small so they need to limit the number of people in at any given time. Also, masks will be required.
Roseville Taco Party
We’re doing Mexican seafood at Nixtaco in Roseville! Chef Patricio Wise and I will be teaming up to make a special menu for Nixtaco — a few of his existing seafood specials, plus several new dishes featured in the cookbook. SOLD OUT.
Seattle Book Signing
I’ll be signing books and answering questions about all things fish and seafood at the Filson flagship store on 1741 1st Ave., from about 5 pm until closing. Books will be for sale, and I will bring copies of my earlier books, too, in case you want to pick up signed copies of them.

Missouri Book Presentation

I will be giving a presentation on how to better care for and cook your fish with the Missouri Dept. of Conservation. Stay tuned for RSVP details; this will be a free event, but we want to get a sense of who is coming so I know how many books to bring.
