Bread & Butter: Food in the Land of Plenty


Bread & Butter is a monthly dinner and storytelling event designed to make you think deeply about social issues. A new storyteller every month will share a personal story with 40 guests in the dining room at the Centre for Stories. Come along and make new friends, hear a new story, and get to know your community. Compulsory: open ears and an open mind. 


Food in the Land of Plenty

Susan Midalia is the author of three short story collections and, most recently, a novel called The Art of Persuasion. She is also an editor, literary judge and mentor. The daughter of post-war European migrants for whom food was an obsession, she has suffered from an eating disorder, decayed teeth and an incessant craving for sugar and fat. Fortunately, her story has a happy ending.
