Food Lit & Cookbook Bookclub - NEA Big Read The Potlikker Papers
October 28, 2019 –
October Meeting: As part of the NEA 2019 Big Read we will be discussing The Potlikker Papers: A Food History of the Modern South. The book offers a culinary celebration of the many ethnic groups that have contributed to America's vibrant food culture.
Wrenching changes transformed the South over the last two generations. During that same span, Southerners transformed America. The Potlikker Papers frames and interprets these shifts in beliefs and identities, revealing how Southern food has become a shared culinary language for the nation.
We offer story times and other activities for children, teens, and adults, including a book discussion group. Check our program calendar or call the library at 845-889-4683.
