Katz's Delicatessen, in Manhattan, N.Y., has been in business since 1888.

AP

This week in New York, Robert Siegel spoke with David Sax, author of Save the Deli, for an interview slated to air on All Things Considered next week.

For his book that will be published Oct. 19, Sax traveled around the country looking for authentic Jewish delicatessens, which are not easy to find these days.

Sax's love for deli food has been passed down to him from his late grandfather, who ignored doctor's orders and went straight to his favorite Jewish deli after a hospital visit.

Because Sax can't be the only one with an interesting deli story to share, we want to hear yours. Write to us at deli@npr.org — or leave them in the comments section below.

And, if you don't like writing, upload photos of your favorite deli, deli worker, deli item, or site where your favorite deli once stood to Flickr.

Step 1: If you're not a member yet, join Flickr. It doesn't cost anything, though if you want to use it to share a lot of photos — i.e., hundreds or thousands — you may want to purchase a Pro account.

Step 2: Upload the pics you'd like to share and tag them nprdeli. (If you're having trouble uploading, consult Flickr's help guide.)

And that's it; you're done.
