Locavore Lit Fest is Huge Success

The first ever Locavore Lit Fest took place in Chestertown March 25 and 26. There was a great turnout, and festival goers were able to hear from and interact with authors who spoke on food related subjects from the environmental impacts of agriculture to the native wild foods of the Eastern Shore, with a dose of humor and the simple joys of eating thrown in for good measure! The WC Dining Hall had local food specials at lunch on Friday to kick off the weekend, and several local authors, including CES' own Program Manager, Tara Holste '07, and Assistant Director of Admissions Aundra Weissert '08, spoke on their inspiration to begin writing about local foods.
