From page A3 | May 01, 2012 |

Author and New Yorker magazine writer Adam Gopnik will speak this week at UC Davis about drawing and food.

Both talks are free and open to the public:

* Wednesday: “Drawing Conclusions: Life Lessons Learned from Drawing,” 4:30 p.m., Nelson Gallery, Nelson Hall (formerly the University Club) on Old Davis Road.

* Thursday: “The Table Comes First: France, Family and the Meaning of Food,” based on his 2011 book of the same title, 4 p.m., Conference Center on Old Davis Road at Alumni Lane. Books will be available for purchase, and Gopnik will be signing them.

The Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science is sponsoring Gopnik’s “The Table Comes First” talk, and a reception afterward. The talk is free, but the reception comes with an admission charge of $15.

Those who wish to attend should contact Tracy Dickinson at (530) 754-6349 or [email protected].

Gopnik’s writing for The New Yorker has earned the National Magazine Award for Essay and the George Polk Award for Magazine Reporting. His books include “Angels & Ages: A Short Book about Darwin, Lincoln, and Modern Life,” “Through the Children’s Gate” and “Paris to the Moon.”
