"N.Y.U. Food Library Joins Big Leagues"

Our Food Studies collection was featured in yesterday's New York Times.  As Fales donor Betty Fussel describes, “Within a very short time, they’ve built up the best food collection in the country.... For those of us who’ve been around a while, it used to be the Schlesinger, which was appropriate for that moment in time. That was essentially a library about women’s roles. Marvin was right in treating New York as a food center unlike any other and thinking the Fales could capture that like no other. It’s a shift in perception.”

And in more food-related news, next Thursday we will be hosting a panel titled "What's the Matter With Mass-Produced Meat?" featuring Fales donor Marion Nestle, Michael Moss, and Daniel Imhoff, and moderated by Paula Crossfield of Civil Eats.
