Tabletop Intimacies: a discussion led by author Kate Taylor.
Thursday, May 15 at the Central Branch of the Oakville Pubic Library at Centennial Square in the Auditorium at 7:00pm
In partnership with the Oakville Public Library, Globe and Mail cultural critic and author, Kate Taylor will read briefly from her novels, and discuss the artistic power of mealtimes both in her own writing and in the photographs of What We Bring to the Table (on display at Gairloch Gardens). In her prize-winning 2003 novel, Mme Proust and the Kosher Kitchen, Kate used cooking as a metaphor for cultural identity and the table as the arena of family relations. Now writing a second novel, Taylor has discovered that bringing characters together for dinner can be the fastest way to drive plot!
