Join us (Thurs. 1/4, 6:30-8:00pm) at the Bedford Central Library for a discussion about the author David Buchanan’s book ‘Taste, Memory: Forgotten Foods, Lost Flavors, and Why They Matter’. This conversation will revolve around preserving heirloom varieties of fruits and vegetables and why these historical breeds matter to the local food movement.

Didn’t read the book? Watch the video below instead and come join the conversation.

This event is free and open to the public.
