Throughout the summer Oakland Public Library is hosting food related programs and events for adults as part of our Reading is So Delicious Summer Reading Program. In keeping with this theme, I've highlighted memoirs written by chefs and food writers. The chef memoirs explore the writer's relationship to food, their journey to the kitchen, and what food represents to them. Other writers, such as Michael Pollan, write about food awareness and the history of food. I hope you enjoy exploring some of these titles and have a few of your own to recommend.
All library locations will be closed on Monday, September 1st for the Labor Day holiday. The Main Library, AAMLO and the Brookfield, Eastmont, Piedmont Avenue and Golden Gate branches will be open on Tuesday, September 2nd. All other library locations will be closed that day.
