1104 Broad Street Book


Memoir by Mary Rocap. The back cover reads: 


In 1973, freshly graduated from Duke University, I along with two people I barely knew, opened a vegetarian restaurant in Durham, NC: Somethyme at 1104 Broad Street. This book is both my story and the history of the restaurant and the one that would follow, Seventh Street. It is also an attempt to look back and try to make sense of what we did and did not accomplish. While the food was central, it was never just about food, it was also art and politics, culture and community and, it was 18 years of my life.
