An invitation from Philip Lee:
September is Food Literacy Month and October is National Farm to School Month, so it's a good time to raise awareness about what and how we eat with kids and families.
I'd like to invite SCBWI members to two events we're planning with Mockingbird Books in Green Lake to promote food literacy in celebration and anticipation of Food Day on Wednesday, October 24.
On Sunday, October 21, from noon–3pm, authors, Rick Swann (Our School Garden!) and Cynthia Lair (Feeding the Young Athlete: Sports Nutrition Made Easy for Players, Parents and Coaches) will present.
There will also be a farmers market of school garden harvest, chicken farmer demonstrations, food sampling from local food growers and producers, and gatherings of garden educators, teachers and librarians, and good food advocates.
Wednesday, October 24 also marks the release of our newest book, Sylvia's Spinach, the picture book debut for SCBWI member Katherine Pryor. From 6–8pm, Kathy will give a book talk followed by a reception at Mockingbird Books. We expect to have many of our partners from the food and education world together to connect good reads and good eats.
