Episode 143: Interview with Junior League Cookbook Collector Katy Spratte Joyce

Welcome to another episode of the podcast. I’m a Midwest-based food and travel writer who collects cookbooks. I’ve written for Eating Well, The New York Times, The Spruce Eats, Travel+Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler, and more (https://muckrack.com/katy-spratte-joyce)

Katy’s collection has strong regional ties (midwest is best!), but is mostly composed of Junior League cookbooks from around the nation. Her late mother-in-law started the collection and gave Katy the books before she passed. Ever since then Katy has continued collecting Junior League Cookbooks. 

Katy is a member of the Junior League of Omaha and serves as the current chair of their  third cookbook, A Century of Serving, which celebrates 100 years of volunteer efforts in the Omaha area. 

On this episode of the podcast Katy and I discuss the history of cookbooks for Junior League, sourcing Junior League cookbooks, her favorite JL cookbooks, as well as her experience being the chair of JL and her involvement in the marketing and sales for their recent centennial project.
