Good episode? Give it some love!
Sara B. Franklin is a writer, teacher, oral historian, and a home cook. She teaches food culture and writing at both NYU and at the Wallkill Correctional Facility. Her first book, Edna Lewis: At the Table with An American Original, came out in 2018. Before the book came out, Sara finished her dissertation based on a series of oral history interviews she conducted with Judith Jones, the famous editor who worked not only with Edna Lewis who but also Julia Child and so many more— she also, remarkably, took The Diary of Anne Frank out of the reject pile.
Sara joins Julia for a conversation centered on Edna Lewis, Judith Jones, and also Sara’s own mother. This episode is all about how critical it is to celebrate the older women in our lives, to name their challenges out loud, and to listen to them when they share their stories.
There's also a shoutout to the Kingston YMCA Farm Project (for more about them head here) and answers to listeners' questions.
