I was honored to give the keynote address to this weekend’s splendid Food Book Fair (for information, travel directions, and schedule, click here).
The Fair features the work of groups listed in the poster. It encompasses an unusually broad vision of food studies in action.
The venue, the Wythe Hotel at 12th street in Brooklyn, is an architectural wonder and worth the trip on its own. It’s just a short walk from the Bedford Street subway stop on the L line.
Check out the schedule. Check out the terrific selection of books at the bookstore–all on food in its many dimensions.
Next public appearance
This is the rescheduling of the lecture I was supposed to give on October 10. The taxi driver went through red light at entrance to the Pulaski, was pulled over and found to be driving without a license. We never made it. The lecture is on food politics. It starts at 6:00. Free and open to the public. The Newark Museum is at 49 Washington Street. This time, I’ll take the PATH.
