“The Secret History of Montana Women’s Community Cookbooks”
December 3, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm MSTFree
Randi Lynn Tanglen, Ph.D. , Executive Director, Humanities Montana
Many Montana families have a well-worn collection of church and community cookbook passed down by grandmothers, aunts, and female friends and family. While these books contain nostalgic time-tested recipes and family traditions, they also have much to tell us—as historical and literary documents— about the lives and stories of the women who created them. In this presentation, Dr. Randi Tanglen discusses her research on women’s community cookbooks in eastern Montana and the unexpected role of cookbooks in promoting women’s influence and leadership. Audience members are invited to bring their own community cookbook(s) to share and discuss.
