• Friday, July 10 – “Kitchen Memories” by Anne Parsons & Alexandra Greeley “Kitchen Memories” travels around the globe in search for the everyman’s treasured family recipes. Through dozens of interviews, Parsons and Greeley collected recipes from 25 countries, from the United States to Greece to India to Thailand.
