Council Grove Public Library
The fourth and final T.A.L.K. series night will be November 14th at 7:00 pm. Speaker Rachel Goosen will be discussing “Tender at the Bone: Growing Up at the Table” by Ruth Reichl.
Rachel Waltner Goossen is a professor at Washburn University specializing in 20th century U.S. and women’s history. She received her Ph.D. in history from the University of Kansas. Rachel joined the KHC TALK program as a discussion leader in 2008.
“I was slowly discovering that if you watched people as they ate, you could find out who they were.” Through food, Ruth Reichl also comes to learn who she is. By turns moving and hilarious, nostalgic and hopeful, she recalls the long road from her upbringing (with parents indifferent to the appeals of the palate) to her chosen profession of restaurant reviewer, with foreign travel and Dumpster diving along the way, and a recipe to punctuate each chapter.
Light refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Council Grove Public Library.
*The T.A.L.K. series is made possible by the Kansas Humanities Council.
