Book Talk: "The Ark of Taste," by Giselle Kennedy Lord and David S. Shields

Book Talk: "The Ark of Taste," by Giselle Kennedy Lord and David S. Shields In-Person

Please join us on Wednesday, July 17, at 7 pm for an evening of the “joy and justice of biodiversity” with Co-Author of The Ark of Taste David Shields and Director of Network Engagement at Slow Food USA Deion Jones. The program will be offered in person in our Program Room, Radcliffe Building.

The author’s book talk and the panel discussion to follow will highlight Slow Food’s The Ark of Taste, a global and grassroots effort to catalog the amazing range of foods around us before they disappear and to raise awareness about how we can act together to preserve and promote these foods that represent the taste of place and a culture.

Reserve a copy of The Ark of Taste from our catalog or purchase a copy from Athena Books.

Historical Foodways: Seed, Hearth & Taste is co-curated by Kathy McCormack, Perrot Memorial Library board president, and Ali Ghiorse, co-founder of The Foodshed Forum.
