Conservation and Conversations — “The Rise: Black Cooks and the Soul of American Food” by Marcus Samuelsson

February 17, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

A virtual event. Cost: $10 per device.

Join the conversation! Connect with ecology and wildlife conservation to critically explore a variety of environmental and conservation issues. Each month participants will receive a discussion guide (including book, film, and podcast recommendations!) and access to a 60-minute live virtual discussion with Zoo educators. We hope to include your whole family in a fascinating conversation on conservation topics each month.

This program is for adults, 18+. Younger readers may participate at their parents/guardians’ discretion based on media selections.

Ever wondered why we eat what we eat or about the history of your favorite foods? Join us in exploring the global African Food Diaspora and sustainable farming in the United States as we read “The Rise: Black Cooks and the Soul of American Food” by Marcus Samuelsson. Book Club participants can read every page or just watch or listen to some of our other media suggestions to join us for a thoughtful discussion. Our book discussion is designed for adults only — but the reading guide included in the program cost will offer media suggestions and discussion questions suitable for children.

*Book available through LFPL or wherever books are sold
