A.V. CROFTS: Meet Me at the Bamboo Table

 
On Sunday, May 28th at 2:00pm, we are excited to be hosting A.V. Crofts for a reading and book signing of her new book, Meet Me at the Bamboo Table: Everyday Meals Everywhere. Crofts is a communications professor and writer who has eaten across the globe, from Sudan to Alabama. In Meet Me at the Bamboo Table, she traces a lifetime of meals across states and continents for the ways that food ties us together. A perfect event for both foodies and travelers, don't miss this chance to learn more about our connection with food!
 
 
 
Book Cover of Meet Me at the Bamboo Table In our ever-more-globalized world, how better to connect than with food, and who better to connect us than a chowhound communications professor? A.V. Crofts has spent decades eating (and learning) her way around the world. She's studied in China, taught in Italy, and conducted humanitarian communications trainings in war-torn Sudan. Here, she traces a lifetime of meals across states and continents for the ways that food ties us together. With warm, thoughtful prose, Crofts invites us to the only coffee shop in Kunming; to a home-cooked feast at a civil rights pilgrimage in Alabama; to a surprise Thanksgiving in Germany; and to her annual Lunar New Year dumpling party in Seattle.
 
This full-color visual tour-de-force will delight foodies, armchair travelers, and anyone who's ever learned a little something from a special meal. Photos, "sketchnotes," and other ephemera from Crofts's globetrotting coalesce into a truly beautiful meditation on how food nourishes community.
