Saturday, September 6, 2014 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

The perfect book to accompany a meal, this anthology also contains recipes ideal for literary discussions. The editors, both professors of English and writing, have sifted contemporary American literature for poems, essays, and fiction in which food plays a prominent role. The pieces they’ve gathered use dishes as touchstones for exploring culture, ethnicity, and more. Contributors here to discuss this work include April Lindner, poet and author of books for young adults; writer and photographer Howard Dinin; poet Karen Leona Anderson; fiction writer and memoirist E.J. Levy; and Paul Hanstedt, author of Hong Konged. (New York Univ. Press)
