KQED Forum: Illustrator Wendy MacNaughton Digs into the Bay Area's Hidden Subcultures
about life in a city, community, subculture & individualism. Reminder that the greatest gift people can give one another is their open mind & understanding.
Take a stroll through the City by the Bay with renowned artist Wendy MacNaughton in this illustrated collection of everyday observations. With her beloved city as a backdrop, a sketchbook in hand, and a natural sense of curiosity, MacNaughton set out to capture locals in their own words. This street-smart collection of intimate explorations is as diverse and beautiful as San Francisco itself, ranging from the vendors at the farmers’ market to people combing the shelves at the public library, from MUNI drivers to the bison of Golden Gate Park, and much more. Meanwhile in San Francisco offers both lifelong residents and those just blowing through with the fog an opportunity to see the city with new eyes. Jacket unfolds into a beautiful illustrated poster!

I picked this book up at the library, and I was immediately taken with it. I read Chang's first book, Circle, some time ago, and this one is quite different. The use of repetition is intoxicating. I'm glad to see that Chang is still writing ekphrastic poems based on Edward Hopper's paintings.

#Persian cuisine has a long and rich tradition. Bright with color and flavor, it is accented with pomegranates, sour cherries, pistachios, and a variety of spices, vegetables, and dried and fresh fruit. In "The New Persian Kitchen" Louisa Shafia, chef and #cookbook author, draws on this tradition but also adapts dishes to meet the contemporary taste for fresh and healthy ingredients.
