Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2009
6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
New Orleans Public Library – Latter Branch, New Orleans, LA
Join Chris Smith of the Southern Food and Beverage Museum for a discussion of the classic novel Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. The book will be discussed in terms of racial identity, the role of women, the concept of love, and other issues. We'll also discuss the book in terms of its food. Food is important in this book; it sets a time and place, demonstrates how people lived, and we'll explore issues of hunger. This book features scenes in which food moves the plot, illustrates important concepts, and serves as metaphor.
