FEATURED FELLOW: AVA CHIN
FEATURED FELLOW: AVA CHINAfter writing a column about foraging in The New York Times for several years, Ava Chin wrote Eating Wildly: Foraging for Life, Love, and the Perfect Meal. Part introduction to foraging, part memoir, the book describes the role that finding food in unexpected places has played in her life. We spoke with her about foraging, the leap from a column to a book, and her work as a professor of creative nonfiction.
