Presentation "Food, Shelter, Story: The World comes to us by Plate and Word"

Crescent Dragonwagon

Food, Shelter, Story:
The World comes to us by Plate and Word: The last two decades have seen a deepening and genre-blending of culinary writing, which reflects our growing understanding that food always, has something to say.
Its languages are not just personal but historical, ecological, political, national, regional, economic, cultural, spiritual. What, how, where, why, and when do we eat?

How does our food come to us? Though eating may appear to be a matter of satiating hunger while giving us sensual pleasure and nourishment, it's complex, tying us to the world and intertwined in every aspect and condition of human life. Food and eating tell us about matters both current and timeless.

During our evening with cookbook author, poet, teacher and blogger Crescent Dragonwagon, we'll learn to listen more closely to what we eat-including the herbs which have added flavor and fable to our plates for centuries. And we'll hear what they have to tell us about the world we live in and the stories we tell about it.

After Dragonwagon's presentation, she will sign copies of her cookbook the Cornbread Gospels.

Event chair Sue Stees along with decoration chairs Patsy Wynn and Dianne Rodehaver and refreshment chairs Dede Boedeker and Kay Schleuter promise a delightfully herbal evening.
