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
- A great Q&A on the book, and fishing in general, with the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
- 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. Details to come.

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. Stay tuned for reservation details.
Boston Book Signing
I will be signing books and talking fish and seafood at the Filson Store in Boston, 52 Seaport Blvd., the evening of Wednesday the 22nd. This will be a free event, and I will have lots of books to sell. More details to come.
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
Kansas City, Missouri
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.
Most of the rest of the tour is still up in the air, but I do know where I will be doing events in many cities. Look for me in September through December here:
- San Diego
- Washington DC
- New Orleans
