Conversation with Debbi Michiko Florence
Part 2 of the Food and Gender Author Series, 2/3, 6pm
- 8 US dollars$8
- Virtual - Link will be sent to registrants
Debbi Michiko Florence is a local resident and author of middle grade novels, chapter books for children, and a recently published picture book biography, Niki Nakayama: a Chef's Tale in 13 Bites. She will discuss how she uses food to explore culture and gender stereotypes in her writing and will also share excerpts from Niki Nakayama and Jasmine Toguchi, Mochi Queen. Join us for the whole series to explore where our beliefs, emotional connections, and behavior patterns about food come from. After all, food informs and is informed by our identity. The foods that we prepare, eat, and enjoy are reflections of racial or ethnic backgrounds, geographical provenance, family histories, and - as we'll explore in this virtual series - gender. PLEASE NOTE: This program is free for teachers and students thanks to a generous gift from CT Humanities. Please email email@example.com if you are a teacher or student and you would like to register for one or all of the sessions.
