Siting Julia | Welcome and Keynote

Friday, September 21, 2012


On September 21, 2012, the Schlesinger Library at the Radcliffe Institute, which houses Julia Child's extensive papers, sponsored "Siting Julia: A Julia Child Centenary Symposium" to celebrate the legacy of Julia Child on the centenary year of her birth. Authors, television producers, restaurateurs, and the Child's family and neighbors provided a behind-the-scenes view of the life and work of American phenomenon Julia Child, who brought her passion for learning and teaching French culinary arts to homes across the United States.

In this video, Lizabeth Cohen and Nancy F. Cott open the symposium with welcoming remarks and Laura Shapiro delivers the keynote address.
