Miracle Fruit Fête
To bid farewell to this year’s fellows, Special Projects Librarian Sarah Burke and Fellowships Coordinator Kathleen Lane organized, in connection with the library exhibition Mirabilia, a Miracle Fruit Fête. All staff and fellows were invited to try a berry that changes the flavor of the food that is eaten after it. The lively event took place on the Bowling Green on May 2. Firsthand reports indicate that the berry lived up to its miraculous propaganda—those who had eaten claim that for at least 30 minutes after eating the fruit sour foods like rhubarb and lemon tasted sweet.
