Florida Food in the Golden Era of Women’s Page Journalism
For Women’s History Month, learn about the time when women reporters were relegated to the “women’s pages.” Professor Kimberly Voss takes us on an enlightening tour of Florida food, drink, and women’s journalism. Florida’s women’s pages — the only place for women in journalism in the 1950s and 1960s — were considered the best in the country. The women in these sections explained Florida food and drink as the state grew. Using backgrounds in home economics, they explained changing tastes in local and national dishes, dessert trends and restaurant reviews. The program will featur pioneering food journalists, Jeanne Voltz, Jane Nickerson and Ruth Gray.
The program is free, but please register. The Zoom ID will be emailed to you with your registration confirmation. You can view the live Zoom event from your own device, or join us at the library where the Zoom event will be streamed in our auditorium. This program is a partnership between the Florida Humanities and Delray Beach Public Library.
Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
