Gumbo--so tasty, so rich with metaphor. The N'awleans classic is a literary goldmine, what with all those spices and that seafood, all the years of drama and history folded into each simmering pot. Kim Robinson's The Roux in the Gumbo uses the thick soup as a metaphor for her own family saga, including tales of her great-grandparents' struggle and hardship that have been passed down through generations, just like a crinkled recipe, browned with age. On Saturday, Robinson will give a book signing at Black Images Book Bazaar, 230 Wynnewood Village, at 4 p.m. We can't predict what will happen. But if you miss out, you may live to roux the day. (Sorry, we just had to.) Call 214-943-0142. --Sarah Hepola
