Here's a video trailer for the exhibit:"Can an exhibition about the history of lunchtime in the city have that much to say? Yes: Going to this show is a bit like heading out to a street cart or a food truck and finding that there is much more to choose from than you thought possible...It is all playfully and elegantly designed. The Web resources are rich as well, including detailed links to images and invitations to help transcribe menus from the library’s collection."
And I'll be getting to see this exciting display for myself in two weeks, when I head to New York for a Food Writing Workshop at the Cullman Center Institute for Teachers, led by the one and only Laura Shapiro--curator of the Lunch Hour NYC exhibit and author of some of my favorite books: Perfection Salad, Something from the Oven, and a biography of Julia Child.
More on my food writing workshop soon! Until then, go explore this beautiful exhibit, either in person, or digitally!
