“Tender Table thrives in places that generate closeness: small, intimate venues. Crowds, therefore, are usually capped through RSVPs at sixty to seventy people. Every reader begins by introducing themselves, then narrating their relationship to food, memory, culture, and family, serving a dish with personal significance while they read.
As Tran noted, ‘There’s always food. Food sometimes tells the best story of all.’”
Tender Table’s Brooklyn edition, featuring Alina Gregorian and Tran, was held at Wendy's Subway. You can read more about the event at LitHub.
