Cod: Reading & Discussion Program - May 14

May 14


Southold Historical Society Museum Complex (Thomas Moore House)

55200 Main Road, Southold, NY 11971

Program: Cod by Mark Kurlansky: A Reading and Discussion Program

Entitled: The Serious Side of Food: Past, Present and Future funded by Humanities New York

In this bestselling book author Mark Kurlansky writes about the biography of a fish, namely Cod, that was the reason Europeans set sail across the Atlantic and helped change the course of the history of the world!

In this program, participants will have the opportunity to read a series of (4) books that tell the story of our fascination with food: past, present and future. Participants are welcome to any and all of the book discussions. The discussions will be led by Karen Lund Rooney, Southold Historical Society Executive Director. Copies of the books, which are provided by Humanities New York, will be available for loan at the Society office (The Prince Building, 54325 Main Road, Southold 11971) and at Peconic Landing Community Center(1500 Brecknock Road, Greenport, NY 11944) starting February 1.
