Bite by Bite: American History through Feasts, Foods, and Side Dishes with Pelham Author Paul Freedman


6:30 pm -
7:30 pm

“As American as apple pie.” It’s a familiar saying, yet gumbo and chop suey are also American! What we eat tells us who we are: where we’re from, how we move from place to place, and how we express our cultures and living traditions.

Join Pelham author Paul Freedman for an exploration of American history through food. From First Salmon Feasts of the Umatilla and Cayuse tribes to fish fries celebrated by formerly enslaved African Americans, from “red sauce” Italian restaurants popular with young bohemians in the East to Cantonese restaurants enjoyed by rebellious young eaters in the West, this is the true story of the many Americas—laid out bite by bite.

This program will take place in-person at the Library, and will be enjoyed by adults and kids ages 10 and up. Registration is suggested, but walk-ins are welcome. Click here to register.
