Busboys and Poets Books Presents: Michael Twitty
5th & K | Cullen Room | December 10, 2017 | 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Please join Busboys and Poets Books as we welcome renowned culinary historian and author Michael Twitty to Busboys and Poets to discuss his new book "The Cooking Gene." 

Southern food is integral to the American culinary tradition, yet the question of who "owns" it is one of the most provocative touch points in our ongoing struggles over race. In this unique memoir, culinary historian Michael W. Twitty takes readers to the white-hot center of this fight, tracing the roots of his own family and the charged politics surrounding the origins of soul food, barbecue, and all Southern cuisine. 

Books will be available for purchase and signing during the event. Please contact books@busboysandpoets.com with any questions or concerns.
