On December 9, I visited High Point Regional High School at Sussex, NJ. There were about a hundred students in the auditorium, and after I gave a reading and answered questions from the audience, we headed over to the cafeteria. And you know what was there? Korean food!
In addition to reading my book, their teacher (Ms. Reedy — thank you, Laraine!) suggested that they delve a bit deeper into Korean culture, so they found recipes on the Internet and cooked up a storm. Check out the gallery below to see some photos I took with my phone of their impressive spread, plus closeups of the cookbooks they made for me. I especially appreciated these, as I’m an excellent eater of Korean food but unfortunately a nonexistent cook.
Also, the local newspaper ran a story about my visit. And with this event, I’m done for 2010. The totals: 17 locations, 1868 miles driven.
