Food and wellness writer Johnson to host virtual event April 7 | News

NEWBURYPORT — Food and wellness writer Lisa C. Johnson will host a free virtual “Why and How I Blog” event with the Emma Andrews Library and Community Center on Thursday, April 7.

Johnson created the Anali’s Next Amendment blog to write about food and the connections between food, family, wellness, and current affairs in 2006.

The practicing attorney has published first-person stories and essays in “The Atlantic,” “Legal Zoom” and “South Shore Living.” She has also contributed numerous food articles to WGBH’s food blog, “Craving Boston”.

Library curator and local author Aine Greaney will host the April 7 event, which will take place from 7-8:15 p.m.

Johnson is expected to explain why she started her blog, as well as her experience interviewing more than 20 Greater Boston personalities, including NewsCenter 5 co-anchor Maria Stephanos and Flour Bakery owner Joanne Chang.
