The Columbus-Lowndes Public Library System (CLPL) is hosting the online presentation "Communities, Cookbooks, and Columbus: Local History Comes to Dinner" on Tuesday, Sept. 22 at noon.


The talk will be presented by Jennifer Brannock, curator of rare books and Mississippiana, and Andrew Haley, associate professor in history, both at the University of Southern Mississippi. In 2013, Brannock and Haley came together to build the Mississippi Community Cookbook Project (MCCP). Over the past seven years, the project has developed the library's cookbook collection into the largest in Mississippi and one of the largest in the Gulf South.


This presentation will provide an overview of the cookbook project and a glimpse at the stories that cookbooks tell about Columbus and Mississippi.



"Communities, Cookbooks, and Columbus" will be presented over Zoom and will only be accessible via a link. The link will be available on the CLPL's Facebook page or you can receive it by contacting Mona Vance-Ali at 662-329-5304 or [email protected]


This program is made possible through the Society of Mississippi Archivists program of speakers and consultants. To learn more visit
