Summer Reading: Soak Up Good Stuff in “The Potlikker Papers” by John T. Edge
What’s in your Southern summer reading bag? A real page turner, we hope, like “The Potlikker Papers: A Food History of the Modern South,” newly released from John T. Edge. Garden & Gun magazine surmises, “In the South, Edge notes, food and eating intertwine inextricably with politics and social history, and he deftly traces these connections from the civil rights movement to today’s Southern eclectic cultural cuisine.” Publisher’s Weekly calls it “one of the ten best summer reads.” Order the paper, electronic or audio book online. Traveling this summer? So is Edge, promoting his new book. Glance at his schedule to see if he’s passing through the same towns as you.
