April Selection:
Nearly 70 famous New England writers and food activists share their writing on food and its greater meaning in our lives

A collection of essays by New England's literary greats, chefs, and food activists, Breaking Bread covers an enormous range of themes from examinations of favorite local foods like scallops and lobster, to broader food related topics including family, class, hunger, intergenerational trauma, nutrition, body image, and more.

Altogether, nearly 70 authors, including major literary figures, including Lily King, Johanthan Lethem, Susan Minot, Rick Russo, Roxanna Robinson, Lee Smith, Jenny Boylan, Christina Baker Kline, as well as nationally known food writers such as Kathy Gunst, Nancy Harmon Jenkins, Sandy Oliver, and dynamic new and established BIPOC writers like Phuc Tran, Alana Dao, Kifah Abdulla, and Reza Jalali, appear in this vibrant collection.

Profits from this collection will benefit Blue Angel, a nonprofit combatting food insecurity by geting healthy food from local farmers to those in need.
