LoFi Book & Record Club

We pair a food-related book with an album or playlist and gather to discuss it.

You can find our book picks at local bookstores like Her Bookshop in East Nashville or Parnassus Books in Green Hills. You don’t have to finish reading the book (or read it all) to attend the discussion.

Recipes & Ideas for Getting Involved

NEW DATE! February 13
6:30 pm @ CITY HOUSE

The inaugural club pairs Feed the Resistance by Julia Turshen with a playlist curated by Tallu Schuyler Quinn of The Nashville Food Project. We’ll read, listen and then gather to discuss. Tallu will be our special guest to talk about the book, her playlist (she grew up in a music-loving family with a songwriter father, and she sings too!), as well as her incredible work with food in this community. As you read, and maybe cook through the book, take a listen to Tallu's playlist on Spotify, or from the list below.
