Event Series Event Series: 2024 Sunday with Friends

Author Anna Zeide

March 24 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Meet Anna Zeide, Director of the Food Studies Program and Associate Professor of History at Virginia Tech, who has written “U.S. History in 15 Foods.” The book takes everyday food items and shows the part they played in the making of the U.S. What did the British colonists think about the corn they observed Indigenous people growing? How are oranges connected to Roosevelt’s New Deal? What can green bean casserole tell us about gender roles in the mid-20th century? Weaving food into colonialism, globalization, racism, economic depression, environmental change, and more, Zeide shows how the U.S. has evolved through the food it eats.

The Sunday with Friends series of author presentations is sponsored by the Friends of the Washington County Public Library.
