Food & Gender Author Series
February 3 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us to explore where our beliefs, emotional connections, and behavior patterns about food come from. After all, food informs and is informed by our identity. The foods that we prepare, eat, and enjoy are reflections of racial or ethnic backgrounds, geographical provenance, family histories, and – as we’ll explore in this virtual series – gender.
DEBBI MICHIKO FLORENCE, 2/3 @ 6PM
Local resident and author of several books for children and young adults, Debbi Michiko-Florence will discuss how she uses food to explore culture and gender stereotypes in her writing. She will also share excerpts from Niki Nakayama: a Chef’s Tale in 13 Bites and Jasmine Toguchi, Mochi Queen.
$8 or $25 for the series. Free for teachers and students.
