At the Common Table: Food, People, and Place in the American South

When: Wed., Dec. 6, 12-1 p.m. 2017

Join filmmaker Jamie S. Ross as she talks about her upcoming film, "At the Common Table," which traces the path of Southern foods across the miles and centuries. By delving deeply into the core cuisine of the region, the film explores the creativity and ingenuity of those at the bottom rung of Southern society — enslaved Africans, dispossessed Native Americans and landless European laborers. This talk complements the exhibition "Virginia’s Forgotten Canneries," which runs through Dec. 30 in the library’s second-floor reading rooms.
