Join us on Thursday, November 12th, 2020 at 7pm for a virtual round-table discussion via Zoom. FCG Reads is a series of virtual round-table discussions centred around a chosen book or piece of writing, with the goal of exploring and diversifying the conversations FCG facilitates and encourages in our community. For this session, we'll be reading the graphic novel MEAL by Blue Delliquanti co-written with Soleil Ho.
Yarrow is a young chef determined to make her mark on the cutting edge of cookery with her insect-based creations. Though her enthusiasm is infectious, it rubs some of her fellow cooks the wrong way, especially Chanda Flores, Yarrow's personal hero and executive chef of an exciting new restaurant. Her people have been eating bugs for centuries, and she's deeply suspicious of this newbie's attempt to turn her traditions into the next foodie trend. While Chanda and her scrappy team of talented devotees struggle to open on time, Yarrow must win over Chanda—and Milani, the neighbour she's been crushing on for weeks—or lose this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to achieve her dreams.
This session will be facilitated by alecia bryan, non-binary artist, community organizer and lover of graphic novels.
