Upcoming programs

Saturday, October 9th, 10:30 a.m. Central Library Auditorium
“Tastes of America: What are we eating? What are we drinking?”

Noted food historian Dr. Andrew Smith will discuss American food today,
and introduce the “Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America”, a
work several years in the making. Dr. Smith is the editor in chief. This
major new reference work has 800 articles on American food in its two
volumes, with a number of articles written by local contributors (such
as Charles Perry, Russ Parsons and Dan Strehl).

Dr. Smith teaches culinary history at the New School University in New
York, and is the general editor of the University of Illinois Press’
Food series. He has written a number of food-related books, including
“The Tomato in America”, "Pure Ketchup”, “Popped Culture” and “Souper
Tomatoes”. He has a book forthcoming on the American Turkey.

A few copies of the Encyclopedia will be available for sale. The
pre-publication price is $195; after October it will be $250.
