This is a big day for Grand Forks Herald Columnist Marilyn Hagerty. Her new book, written with chef Anthony Bourdain, is being published. This Wednesday morning, Marilyn appeared with Matt Lauer on The Today Show to publicize it.

The book is called "Grand Forks...A History of American Dining in 128 Reviews". It's a collection of her "Eat Beat" columns from the Herald over the past 20 years. Lauer asked Marilyn what it is about the reviews that teaches us so much about American dining. Hagerty replied "well, in the first place, I think it shows that we don't all eat at hoity, toity restaurants. Some of us eat at truck stops and we go to McDonalds. And we go there because we like it. We like the food and sometimes in smaller markets, it's all we have." Hagerty is making several other media appearances to promote her book while in New York.
