In-Person: Longwood Gardens Community Read Book Talk: "Black Food" by Bryant Terry

Thursday, March 30, 2023 -
6:00pm to 7:00pm
Chester County Library in Exton - Burke Room

Explore the concept of food as a connector. “Black Food, Stories, Art and Recipes from Across the African Diaspora” is not just a book of recipes. It is an exuberant celebration of foodways and culture. “Black Food” is a beautiful, fun read of powerful essays, stunning visual art, and delicious recipes focusing on the culinary histories of the African diaspora. As shared by Terry, “like Black people, this book contains multitudes.” With recipes as the through line, discover expert cooking insight, inspiration, and stories as told by brilliant chefs in this thought-provoking selection that explores themes from spirit to migrations to Black future.

Join us for a discussion on “Black Food” and bring your own “food” stories to share. The “award-winning Community Read program is designed to bring books and people together, and spur discussion around an important topic or idea”. Join in and celebrate the tenth year of Community Read with a look at how food connects people—especially for special moments—and how food connects to the world of plants and gardening. A limited number of One Day Passes for 4 to Longwood Gardens will be given away at this event.
