WORKSHOP #2 – Food & Fiction
Food is as fascinating and diverse as the people it sustains, and every corner of the globe has a fascinating story to tell. Food and its preparation are central to our lives, memories, myths and rites of passage. It is no wonder that authors from Chaucer to Waugh, Petronius to Pessoa have dedicated so much ink to the role of food in our lives, and even our deaths. Join us for an evening of readings and discussions from several New York area writers as they talk about food and fiction in their lives and writings.
