    Anna (Melendez) Johnson discusses the history and traditions of this important holiday celebration.

    In this talk presented by Arizona native, former Bendite and Dia de los Muertos enthusiast Anna (Melendez) Johnson, discover the true meaning behind the traditions of this vibrant and colorful Latin American celebration honoring our beloved who are no longer with us. This is not worshipping the dead; this is a celebration of loved ones and their glorious contribution to who we are today.

    Arizona native Anna Johnson became fascinated by the Dia de los Muertos celebration, regalia and makeup eight years ago when she lived in Oregon. When in college she performed pantomime professionally, so it is not surprising that Anna dresses up and attends Dia de los Muertos celebrations in Arizona. She has won contests for her Catrina look and enjoys taking photos with festival attendees.

    Anna has attended Dia de los Muertos celebrations in Mesa and Sedona and looks forward to the day when we can all gather again to celebrate traditionally. An Arizona State University broadcast journalism graduate, Anna also studied theatre and public communications in college. With over 20 years of experience as a public information specialist and community theatre volunteer (on and off stage), Anna is at her best when learning about or visiting historic buildings and believes everything with age havalue and has a great story to tell. She currently lives in Goodyear, Arizona and is a writer and editor for the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s wildlife conservation magazine Arizona Wildlife Views. *oo*

    Dosa and Other Spontaneous Fermentations of Beans and Grains
    Join Fermentation Revivalist Sandor Katz in a live demonstration and discussion of fermenting beans and grains.

    Fermentation Revivalist Sandor Katz demonstrates simple traditional techniques for using fermentation to make beans and grains more nutritious and delicious. Dosas are South Indian crepes made from a fermented batter of rice and lentils. Sandor will demonstrate the process for these start to finish, and also show and discuss other similar methods for fermenting beans and grains.

    Sandor Ellix Katz is a fermentation revivalist. His books Wild Fermentation and The Art of Fermentation, along with the hundreds of fermentation workshops he has taught around the world, have helped to catalyze a broad revival of the fermentation arts. A self-taught experimentalist who lives in rural Tennessee, the New York Times calls him “one of the unlikely rock stars of the American food scene.” Sandor is the recipient of a James Beard award and other honors.

    Learn to brew your own kombucha.

    Learn the basic kombucha brewing process with Carly King. From growing a Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast (SCOBY), to primary and secondary fermentation, Carly will also demonstrate how to store your extra SCOBYs and what to do if you want to stop brewing for a while and then pick it back up. Kombucha is a scientific art and although brewing kombucha seems tricky and scary, it is actually a fairly simple process as long as you follow some crucial guidelines. There is a lot of freedom when brewing kombucha from the flavors you create to how long the brewing process takes. Experimenting with the basic steps is how you make something new and unique!

    Carly King is a Junior vocal performance major at Southern Oregon University. She has been brewing kombucha since late March of 2020. She is now brewing an average of five gallons of kombucha every two weeks. Her kombucha has become very popular with her friends and family.

    Learn to make this staple of Korean cuisine with Ahja King.

    Kimchi is a traditional side dish of salted and fermented vegetables. Kimchi variations are limited only by imagination and flavor preferences and can include everything from garlic, onions, radishes and ginger.

    Traditionally, kimchi was stored in-ground in large earthenware to prevent the kimchi from being frozen during the winter months. It was the primary way of storing vegetables throughout the seasons. In the summer the in-ground storage kept the kimchi cool enough to slow down the fermentation process.

    Ahja King is an educator, entrepreneur, gardener, reader, wife and mother of three amazing women. Growing up near the Salinas Valley in California, her mother taught her how to grow, glean, harvest and preserve as much food as possible. *oo*

    Discuss "The Tatooist of Auschwitz" by Heather Morris. Click the link above or join at https://zoom.us/j/157999301 or with Meeting ID 157 999 301

    Physical copies are available first-come first-serve at the Downtown Bend Customer Service Desk. Additional formats can be placed on hold: https://dpl.bibliocommons.com/item/show/1698072094

    The incredible story of the Auschwitz-Birkenau tattooist and the woman he loved. Lale Sokolov is well-dressed, a charmer, a ladies' man. He is also a Jew. On the first transport from Slovakia to Auschwitz in 1942, Lale immediately stands out to his fellow prisoners. In the camp, he is looked up to, looked out for, and put to work in the privileged position of Tatowierer- the tattooist - to mark his fellow prisoners, forever. One of them is a young woman, Gita, who steals his heart at first glance. His life given new purpose, Lale does his best through the struggle and suffering to use his position for good. This story, full of beauty and hope, is based on years of interviews author Heather Morris conducted with real-life Holocaust survivor and Auschwitz-Birkenau tattooist Ludwig (Lale) Sokolov. It is heart-wrenching, illuminating, and unforgettable.
