Culture, Community and Connection through Food
Join me for a talk about exploring new cultures through food, traveling via the kitchen and dinner table, and making healthy eating accessible, fun, joyous and delicious for kids and adults everywhere. I chat with Amber Stott, the innovative founder of Sacramento’s Food Literacy Center about understanding the impact of our food choices on our health, the environment and the economy.
Raising Bilingual Kids
Are you hoping to give your child the gift of speaking more than one language? Join me for this conversation with a speech and language specialist. I talk with Mary Pat O’Malley from the National University of Ireland about the latest linguistics research, our experiences with our own multilingual children and practical tips for raising bilingual kids. Mary Pat sheds light on myths and emphasizes that there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Get the lowdown on the role of community, personal relationships and storytelling in fostering language acquisition.
KIOSK: Travel and storytelling through everyday objects
Join us for a virtual journey as I travel with the founders KIOSK to the crowded streets of India, a smoky sauna in Finland and a coffee plantation in Nicaragua in search of beautiful, everyday objects and insights. This fascinating pair of artists share how they use their shop and exhibitions to tell stories, build community and hopefully make the world a better place.
