Virtual Bookshelf: American Food Culture

This is the first of three blog posts that feature virtual book displays created by library student workers. The blog editors would like to thank all of the students who participated for the planning, research, and creativity that went into these projects!


Dive into American Food Culture

By Alessandra GangiDino & Sanjum Ishrat

Food is much more than what it seems on the surface; it is powerful and makes a difference in people’s everyday lives. It allows you to understand the culture more without anyone even having to say anything. This virtual display presents books and videos about different types of food in America, thereby giving you a glimpse into the lives of people living in other parts of the U.S. and expanding your appreciation for their culture. After exploring this virtual display, you will have a greater appreciation for food and recognize the impact of living in a diverse country like the U.S.
