SFA at SHA

The Southern Foodways Alliance hosted a booth at the annual Southern Historical Association in Memphis this past weekend. Our booth showcased bobbleheads and skillets, Gravy newsletters and books by members, and our newest edition of Cornbread Nation, Cornbread Nation 2: The United States of Barbecue. We were very excited to see the interest generated as Peggy Galis and Mary Beth Lasseter lured members to our booth with moonpies, and then Fred Sauceman and Ronni Lundy wowed them with great tales about SFA's work. We look forward to welcoming many new members in the coming days, supporting new oral history initiatives across the South, and discussing sugar all next year. Since our visitors were lured by moonpies, we already know that they each have a sweet tooth for our upcoming discussions!
