I’m speaking with Fabio Parasecoli about his new book, Gastronativism: Food, Identity, Politics, at the Museum of the City of New York at a session chaired by Krishnendu Ray at 6:30 pm. Information is here and the ticketing link is here. This is a preview of the museum’s forthcoming exhibit, Food in New York: Bigger Than the Plate (opening September 16) and is co-presented by MOFAD (Museum of Food and Drink).
San Francisco: CPS discussions on art & culture
I’ll be speaking at a private salon that is open to the public. The series is in honor of Cyril Patrick Shaughnessy, Jr. It is free but requires rsvp. To rsvp, go to cpslectures.com. Click on “invite me.” This will trigger an e-mail and, later, an e-vite with details about where and when. My presentation, on “Food Politics, Pet Food Politics, and Today’s Healthcare Mess,” is at 8:00 p.m.
