Art Rx | Writing Your Travel and Food | Special Guest Diana Spechler

Location: Treehouse Lake Room

June 8, 2022 2:00 pm

If you travel, you have to eat. (Even if you don’t travel, you have to eat.) Many people travel to eat. And there's a reason that traveling and eating go hand in hand: Food is never just food--it’s history, it's culture. It's also love, politics, luxury, necessity, art, and science. It is inextricable from both its place of origin and wherever it’s served.

Diana Spechler is a novelist, essayist, and travel writer whose stories appear in the New York Times, Harper’s, The Washington Post, TheGuardian, Playboy, BBC, Travel + Leisure, and many other publications. She writes a newsletter about her travel writing life at and is an eight-time Moth StorySLAM winner whose work has been featured on Selected Shorts, NPR, and elsewhere.
