You are invited to a book launch party!
Wednesday 17 July, 2013
6-8 PM at Archeworks
625 N. Kingsbury St.
Chicago, IL 60654
This event is FREE with light refreshments.
Please join us to celebrate the completion of the multisensory book! GARLIC & GREENS: accessible soul food stories presents "Shoebox Lunch”, a time capsule of memories about families and food traditions. It features stories from Dorothy Horton-Jackson, Audrey Petty, Donna Pierce, Marcus Johnson, Lynn Manning, and Joy Smith.
“Shoebox Lunch” is designed to be accessible to people with low or no vision. By engaging the senses of touch, taste, and smell, this interactive audio piece highlights soul food traditions, their southern roots, and connections to Black history.
$65+ Kickstarter contributers may pick up their copies at this event, otherwise they will be shipped by mail. Copies of the book will be available starting on the 17th, but quantities are limited. All purchases will allow us to share the project for free with people who are low or no vision.
