Join food writer Julia O’Malley to explore how an important recipe can lead you into your personal history and identity. Sample several styles of food memoir before diving into your own story using a recipe you bring as a prompt. This class is open to anyone with an interest in food or writing — no previous experience in journalism or food-writing is required. Come with a recipe (original recipe card or cookbook preferred), a favorite pen and a notebook. Julia O’Malley writes and edits for the Anchorage Daily News and has written about food for The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, Eater, Alaska magazine and Edible Alaska. She has collaborated with the Anchorage Museum on its forthcoming book about Alaska foodways, "The Whale and the Cupcake: Stories of Subsistence, Longing, and Community in Alaska," which is slated to be released later this year through the University of Washington Press. A short lunchbreak is provided for lunch; food available for purchase from Muse or the atrium kiosk, or you can bring your lunch. $50, members receive a 10% discount. Space is limited; registration required.
