NORFOLK — The Slover Library will be hosting Michael Twitty, author of “The Cooking Gene,” on Oct. 18 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The free event will be in the Slover Library, room 650 and is for adults only.
Twitty is a renowned culinary historian, offering a fresh perspective on what Slover Library calls “our most divisive cultural issue, race.”
In this memoir of Southern Cuisine and food culture, Twitty traces his ancestry — both black and white — through food, from Africa to America and slavery to freedom.
Twitty has appeared on “Bizarre Foods America” with Andrew Zimmern, “Many Rivers to Cross” with Dr. Henry Louis Gates and has lectured to more than 300 groups.
Guests can enjoy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.
