Jennifer Cognard-Black will be hosting an open discussion about her book “Books that Cook”

Artist Statement

Jennifer Cognard-Black is a Professor of English at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, where she teaches creative writing, women’s literature, and the novel. This special presentation as part of our monthly Art Share Series will include material from “Books That Cook”,  edited along with Melissa A. Goldthwaite.

“Whether a five-star chef or beginning home cook, any gourmand knows that recipes are far more than a set of instructions on how to make a dish. They are culture-keepers as well as culture-makers, both recording memories and fostering new ones.”
