Sea que comes para vivir o vives para comer, el comer y cocinar son experiencias tanto personales como comunales, partes esenciales de todas las culturas. Como parte de un proyecto comunitario iniciado por la Biblioteca Pública de East Boston, compartiremos comidas, recetas, e historias y haremos una exploración de los ritos y las tradiciones culinarios, los mercados y restaurantes del barrio. De ahí aprenderás a escribir, con lujo de detalles vividos, crónicas y cuentos acerca de la familia, la cultura, el hambre, y más. Extractos de obras escritas por Sandra Cisneros, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Roxane Gay, y Aglaja Veteranyi proveerá inspiración. Tendrás la oportunidad de publicar tus escritos en un libro de recetas producida por la biblioteca y celebrar con un evento culminante. Son bienvenidos a este taller escritores trabajando en inglés o español. El taller es abierto a la participación de todos sin importar su nivel de experiencia o habilidades de escritura.

Son bienvenidas las familias y los adolescentes que asisten con un padre u otro pariente. Hay café y meriendas. Proveeremos actividades sencillas para entretener a los niños.

La clase tomará lugar en el sucursal East Boston de la Biblioteca Pública de Boston, 365 Bremen St, Boston.

Whether you eat to live or live to eat, eating and cooking are personal and communal experiences at the heart of every culture. As part of a community project started by the East Boston Public Library, we will share meals, recipes, and stories and explore our culinary rituals, traditions, neighborhood markets and eateries. Then we will bring vivid sensory detail to the page through short essays and stories about family, hunger, culture, and more. Excerpts of work by Sandra Cisneros, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Roxane Gay, and Aglaja Veteranyi will provide inspiration. You will have the opportunity to publish your work in a community cookbook produced by the library and celebrate with a culminating event. This workshop welcomes writers who prefer either English or Spanish and is open to anyone with any level of writing experience or skill.

Families welcome. Coffee and snacks provided. Teens are welcome to attend with an older relative. We will provide simple activities to keep young children occupied.

This FREE class takes place at the Boston Public Library's East Boston branch, 365 Bremen St, Boston, MA 02128.

To register, arrive 15 minutes before class starts.
