In Portland tonight, a Seattle author talks about “everyday meals everywhere.”
A.V. Crofts, author of Meet Me at the Bamboo Table
Tuesday, February 21, 7pm
Annie Bloom’s Books
7834 SW Capitol Hwy
Crofts has spent decades eating (and learning) her way around the world. She’s studied in China, taught in Italy, and conducted humanitarian communications training in war-torn Sudan. Here, she traces a lifetime of meals across states and continents for the ways that food ties us together. 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.
The author works at the University of Washington as a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Communication and a Clinical Instructor in the Department of Global Health. Her work has been published in Gastronomica and Saveur and on her popular blog avcrofts.com.
