Proceeds benefit free programming from the San Diego Writers Festival.

The San Diego Writers Festival in collaboration with Mingei Museum Community Mondays is delighted to present IMMIGRANT FOODS + STORIES "Gup Shup" event, where cuisine and culture come together for an evening of food tasting and inspiring conversation from some of San Diego’s most salient immigrant voices. Come for the food…stay for the laughter!

The panel will include Huda Al-Marashi, author of "First Comes Marriage: My Not-So-Typical American Love Story" and Jane Muschenetz, co-founder of "Table M" and author of "All the Bad Girls Wear Russian Accents," with insightful moderation by Madhushree Ghosh, author of "Khabaar: An Immigrant Journey of Food, Memory and Family." The presentation will also feature a visit with farmers from City Heights’ groundbreaking New Roots Community Farm, recognized by Michelle Obama as “a model for the nation, for the world.”
