"Plain Eating" - Joyce Slater

People moving to Kansas brought some recipes with them. Some foods could not travel to Kansas and had to be left behind. Through it all Kansans made do with what they had. Storyteller Joyce Slater will explore the foods brought and eaten in Kansas by her ancestors and others who settled here in "Plain Eating."

Joyce Slater is a nationally recognized storyteller. She has been involved with storytelling for over twenty-five years and has received the ORACLE Distinguished National Service Award from the National Storytelling Network.
