Food is more than nourishment. It is the very fabric of our collective familial narrative, passed from one generation to the next. It is preserved on scraps of paper, 3x5 cards stuffed into boxes, and through the act of shared time over a simmering pot. It is memory and survival, and reminds us that we have traveled great lengths to enjoy this moment together. read more
Since our launch in August so much has happened on 3200 Stories.
We’ve added new authors…Greg Zeman, Josie AG Shapiro, Eric Orner, Jonathan Harris, Laura Sachs, Batshir Torchio, David Shlachter to name a few. We’ve made new friends…Aaron Davidman, Negin Farsad, Boots Riley, Mitchell Rosenthal, Isabel Allende, David Kelley, and Angelique Kidjo and so many more.
We are diving into new themes too.
Check out Glimpses of Israel. Israel is at the heart of many of our conversations. In this theme we offer a peek…we’d love to hear yours.
We are also examining Tradition. Things we do and want to keep doing because they hold meaning to us. Practices new and old. Invented or passed along. What's on your Seder plate? How do you make your coffee in the morning? How do you spend New Years day? And don't miss our remix of the musical theater classic “Tradition” to honor 50 years of Fiddler on the Roof.
Passover is upon us and it’s time to take a look Backstage. Meet (or meet again), Juan Amador, Tommy Shepherd, Candice Wicks and Dan Wolf. Together with Professor Ari Y. Kelman they developed this exciting performance that remixes the passover narrative. It’s beautifully produced, ambitious and fun.
Even with all of that, we have plenty of space for your stories…and we are happy to help you find the best way to share them.
Thank you for all our support as we’ve grown.
All our very best all the time,
