Taste Makers: Seven Immigrant Women Who Revolutionized Food in America

RSVP HERE!

This November, join AAWW as we celebrate Mayukh Sen’s new book, Taste Makers: Seven Immigrant Women Who Revolutionized Food in America. In Taste Makers, Mayukh brings forward the stories of seven immigrant women whose legacies are complicated and often erased, despite their deep global influence in food. Their histories unwrap, layer by layer, revealing experiences of food, labor, immigration and gender. Mayukh will be joined in conversation by novelist Monique Truong.

Purchase a copy of Taste Makers by Mayukh Sen from our friends at Books Are Magic! 

This event will be live-streamed on Zoom. Please RSVP to receive the Zoom link via email. The event will be uploaded to the AAWW YouTube channel the following week.

// NOTE ON ACCESSIBILITY//
This event will be captioned with ASL Interpretation by Pro Bono ASL.
