Interested in the connection between these issues and parents regularly eating meals with their children? Then come and hear a discussion of At the Table, Nourishing Conversation and Food at the Downsview branch of the Toronto Public Library, 2793 Keele Street, Toronto on Thursday, January 31 at 1.00 p.m.
Rather than doom and gloom, however, the book is really a celebration of family and friends gathering around the dinner table for good food and conversation. So most of the talk will focus on entertaining tales shared at dinnertime, with only a smattering of alarming statistics to remind one of the importance of mealtime conversation.
Can’t make it to the talk? You can buy the book ($21.95) by contacting Penumbra Press at: www.penumbrapress.com.
