FOODSTOCK Food Writing Conference at Wesleyan University

This Saturday, May 5, Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT will host FOODSTOCK!

After 180 years of illuminating the humanities, arts, and sciences, Wesleyan proudly presents FOODSTOCK, an all-day extravaganza devoted to cooks and books. From sustainability to nopales burritos, from progressivefood policy in government to artisanal kim-chi, from famous food critics to exceptional bloggers, this one-dayconference strives to enlighten and entertain every cook, every eater, every reader, every writer.

The many speakers at the event include Ruth Reichl, Eric Asimov, Dorie Greenspan, Molly O’Neill, Jane Stern and BGSK’s own Cara Eisenpress! In addition to many talks and panels on everything from cookbook writing to food sustainability and academic food writing, the food-centric conference will feature a food-truck lunch, farmers market, pop-up cookbook store, local vendors and more!

The conference is free and open to the public, but registration is closed and the conference is sold out. Guests who did not register are welcome to attend the food truck lunch from 12-1pm.
