Local chef and culinary legend Bruce Moffett (of Barrington's, Good Food on Montford, and Stagioni) will come back to Sensoria this year to present his brand new cookbook, Bruce Moffett Cooks (The University of North Carolina Press).
On Tuesday, April 9, he'll work with CPCC Culinary students on a master class in the early afternoon. This will be followed by a culinary demonstration, which will be free and open to the public, from 4 - 5:30pm, after which attendees can meet Moffett at a book signing.
Andrea Vail will be the featured visual artist for Sensoria 2019! Throughout Spring 2019, Vail will work with students on Bridging, a multi-campus, collaborative, and large-scale fabric project culminating in its installation in the Overcash Lobby for Sensoria.
Bridging will be a tangible representation of CPCC’s diverse community: coming from unique experiences, converging at Central Piedmont Community College, then venturing outward. Rooted in the intercultural and generational traditions of patterned textiles, this work, embellished with palm-sized tassels and printed with student-sourced imagery, is both inclusive of individual identities and realized as one unified fabric.
We are thrilled to announce that the 2019 recipient of the Irene Blair Honeycutt Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Literary Arts is poet, novelist, and memoirist Judy Goldman! Please join us at 6pm on April 8 to celebrate her work. Dannye Romine Powell will interview Goldman, who will also read excerpts from her new memoir, Together (Nan A. Talese, Feb. 2019).
“Judy Goldman is that rare writer whose inward gaze forces her reader to gaze inward as well, revealing something both brutal and beautiful about the world in which we live. . . .I loved this book. I really loved this book.” – Wiley Cash, New York Times bestselling author of A Land More Kind Than Home and The Last Ballad
