Book Discussion Series at Wor-Wic Focuses on Food Theme
August 31, 2007

The public is invited to attend “Food, Glorious, Food,” a free book discussion series that will be held on Tuesdays this fall at Wor-Wic Community College at the college campus on the corner of Route 50 and Walston Switch Road in Salisbury.

The three-part series coordinated by Delmarva Discussions and Wor-Wic will focus on the history and popular culture of food and the ways that people relate to food.

The first discussion will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 18, and will feature Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin’s “The Physiology of Taste.”

“Chocolat,” written by Joanne Harris, will be discussed at the second session on Tuesday, Oct. 9.

The final discussion will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 6, and will feature Anik See’s “A Taste for Adventure.”

The discussions will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 103A of the college’s new Workforce Development Center.

A limited number of each book are available at Wor-Wic.

Delmarva Discussions is a nonprofit literary organization offering scholar-led book discussions throughout Delaware and the Eastern Shore areas of Maryland and Virginia. Funding for the series comes from the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore.
