Finding Inspiration in the World of Plants and Food with Jacqueline Briggs Martin

Food Literacy Summer Author Series - Jacqueline Briggs Martin author of Farmer Will Allen and The Growing Table and Alice Waters and The Trip to Delicious


Dig into food literacy this summer with our Readers to Eaters Author Series sponsored by South Carolina Farm to School. Meet award-winning author Jacqueline Briggs Martin when she presents "Digging for Story: Finding Inspiration in the World of Plants and Food."  

In this session, participants will meet Readers to Eaters founder Philip Lee and discover how his motto of "Good Reads & Good Eats" helps to foster conversations about growing, cooking, and eating food! 

Emilee Elingburg, Director of Educational Programs for The Bee Cause Project, will share how the non-profit works to save the bees. She'll also connect educators to their free book club challenge resources and OER Commons. 

Jacqueline Briggs Martin has written over 22 picture books for children, including the 1999 Caldecott winner, Snowflake Bentley. Her books have been named to Smithsonian Magazine's and Kirkus Review's "Best Book" lists. In 2018 Chef Roy Choi and the Street Food Re-mix (co-written with June Jo Lee) was named an Orbis Pictus Honor Book by the NCTE and a Sibert Honor Book by the ALA. Creekfinding: A True Story received the Green Earth Award for Environmental Writing for Children. Creekfinding also received a Riverby Award, which recognizes exceptional non-fiction natural history books for young readers.
