Scholar Karen Schoemer will lead a reading/discussion series on the Serious Side of Food. The group will convene monthly, starting on February 14th to explore an aspect of our culture that is often taken for granted. Food provides both nourishment and pleasure and each meal has its own broader ramifications for our personal health and well-being and global environmental and political landscapes. Working with histories, novels, and journalism, this series exposes some of the issues that lie on our plates.
The discussion group will meet at the Chatham Public Library on the second Monday of each month (February 14 – June 13) from 6:30pm – 8pm. In the event that pandemic conditions worsen, this group may move online to Zoom. Advance registration is required at bit.ly/CPL_RnD22 as space is limited.
