LoFi Library at Bonnaroo


Our library in the nonprofit Planet Roo section will include food and music books, plus a newsstand with copies of food and music magazines from old-standbys like Rolling Stone and Food & Wine to independent pubs like Cherry Bombe and Gravy, a publication of the Southern Foodways Alliance. 

We’re excited to be sharing our library space with Good Golly Tamale. Those who purchase a tamale will receive our LoFi bookmarks and a card with all our scheduled discussions and playlists over the course of the festival. We’re informally calling it a LoFi Lunchbox (though we hear these tamales are great for breakfast too especially after yoga, which also takes place daily at Planet Roo).

We’ve posted the schedule of mini book clubs at Bonnaroo below. We’ll be reading from The Cooking Gene by Michael W. Twitty on the Solar Stage on Thursday and raising questions about inclusion through food and music. On Friday, we’ll read more from Feed the Resistance and discuss revolution, and on Saturday, we’ll read some stories from Cherry Bombe magazine’s #86THIS series and talk about home cooking’s role as a feminist act.
