Our Current Exhibition
Food for Thought:
A Literary Feast
Help yourself to a smorgasbord of food as portrayed in literature. Sample new dishes and savor old favorites.
The authors rant and rave, philosophize and poke fun at what we eat and how we eat it. Some selections are poetic, some are horrific, some are nutritious, and many are just plain delicious!
The exhibition is free and open to the public during regular Salem Athenaeum hours. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday: 1 PM – 5 PM, Thursday: 5 PM – 9 PM and Saturday: 10 AM – 2 PM.
