Get reading this winter as we join with Longwood Gardens for the annual Community Read. This year celebrates the tenth year of the Community Read with a look at how food is a connector of people—especially for special moments—and how food connects to the world of plants and gardening. 
The 2023 selections include the featured book 'Black Food: Stories, Art, and Recipes from Across the African Diaspora,' an exuberant celebration of foodways and culture, edited and curated by celebrated chef and writer Bryant Terry. The middle-grade title, 'The Comic Book Guide to Growing Food' by Joseph Tychonievich and illustrated by Liz Anna Kozik, is a graphic novel guide to growing a successful vegetable garden; while the title for ages 4–7, 'Bring Me Some Apples and I’ll Make You a Pie: A Story About Edna Lewis' by Robbin Gourley, traces the roots of Edna Lewis, a descendant of slaves who grew up to be a famous chef, and includes five kid-friendly recipes.
