Listen to this story
On Saturday food writers and lovers of food and cookbooks will gather at Paul Smiths College for a conference called "Eat Your Words" sponsored by the Adirondack Center for Writing. Mark Kurlansky is author of Cod and Salt: A World History. He's made a career studying human nature through the prism of food and commodities. His new book -- The Big Oyster, about the history of oyster fishing in New York City -- will be published this winter. Kurlansky sat down and talked with Brian Mann about the fascinations and human connections that come together in the things we eat.
