Join author Caroline Eden for a journey through her latest book, Black Sea: Dispatches and Recipes through Darkness and Light.
Travel from the literary courtyards and salons of Odessa’s old city, through Bulgarian forests, to Russian rooftop churches in Istanbul, and finally into the half-timbered mansions of Turkey’s tea-farmers and bakers. Hear the unique histories and personal stories of a diverse cast of characters, including vignettes of the lives of fishermen, bakers, writers and literary characters collected thanks to Eden’s “unabashedly greedy curiosity.” Unfold the hidden stories of the Black Sea that highlight the collective psyche, history, and longings of one of the world’s most fascinating and under-appreciated regions.
