As we begin to approach the holiday season, we have cooked up a delicious event for the latest in our "ArtPlusOne" Series. We are honored to collaborate with Milkweed Editions who present author and chef, BETH DOOLEY, as she offers tastings from her recent book In Winter's Kitchen. Alongside these delicious morsels from the Midwest, ceramic serving dishes from artist CHUCK SOLBERG will be used, as well as a visual feast of paintings from our stable of talented artists will provide a seasonal backdrop to the author and her food.
FARM FIELDS, GARDENS, KITCHENS, AND LIBRARIES OF THE GREAT MIDWEST. Join a delightful excursion through today’s food scene with stories of farmers, cheese makers, butchers, home cooks, chefs, sommeliers, and restaurateurs with novelist J. Ryan Stradal and food writer Beth Dooley. A dessert reception and book signing by the authors will follow with books available for sale courtesy of the University of Minnesota Bookstores.
The characters of these stories are animated by forces at once passionate and perplexing. Fiercely funny and entirely original, this collection takes readers from the United States to Israel and back again to examine the mystifying reaches of our own minds and hearts.

She has received numerous awards for her work, including the Governor General’s Literary Award for Translation, the Columbia University Translation Center Award (twice), and, most recently, the Canada Council for the Arts Molson Prize.
This collection is an exploration of histories, personal and public. The author says of these poems: “I am interested in the times when personal and political history liberate, and the times when they oppress.”
These poems take a sometimes humorous, sometimes wrenching look at human relationships, at the varieties of isolation and communication possible in sexuality and friendship. This collection's lush lyric voice is grounded in a tough sensibility, an undaunted, sensuous truth-telling.
