A Taste for More: Author Phyllis Dixon in Conversation with Dr. Joan Prince at East

Saturday, June 29, 2024 - 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM

Audience: Adults/ Older Adults

Categories: Author Visit, Book Club/Discussion

Join author Phyllis Dixon in conversation with Dr. Joan Prince for her newest book, "A Taste for More." In a breathtaking saga spanning the final three decades of the Great Migration - from the Jim Crow south in rural midcentury Mississippi through the transformative 1970s - a tenacious single mother and culinary genius builds an unprecedented empire. But the one dream she can't stop chasing may cost her everything. Readers of Terry McMillan, Dolen Perkins-Valdez, Tracy Brown, ReShonda Tate, and Sadeqa Johnson will be captivated by this powerful story of mothers and daughters, against-all-odds success, generational trauma, and redefining home. Trailblazer Dr. Joan Prince is a member of the Board of Regents for the UW System, former UWM Vice Chancellor and Associate Professor, and former UN Ambassador. Books will be for sale following the program from Boswell Book Company, and the author will be signing copies.

Location: Community Room, Gift of Lucile Krug
