ANITA VERNA CROFTS & KATE LEBO
Join University of Washington faculty member and essayist Anita Verna Crofts and local poet, food writer, and baker Kate Lebo, author of A Commonplace Book of Pie as they celebrate global food communities, travel, and memory at the official release of A.V. Crofts' new book, Meet Me at the Bamboo Table: Everyday Meals Everywhere (Chin Music Press). This launch party will feature audio, visual accompaniment, readings, conversation, and book signings by both authors for an evening of arm-chair adventure and conversation. 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.
