Jackie Briggs MartinBook panelWelcome

Thanks for coming to my site. Here you will find the basic information about my writing life, my books, and information about my author appearances, and other bits and pieces about writing and reading. I do maintain a blog (actually two) and if you visit those you are apt to hear about where I've been and up-to-date information about my books and inspiration for writing.
Farmer Will Allen and the Growing Table -- one of my recent books has been named to several honor lists -- (Farmer Will Allen and the Growing Table was a finalist for Minnesota's Star of The North Book Award) I am thrilled that readers, librarians, and teachers are adding the book to their bookshelves.

Chef Roy Choi Chef Roy Choi and the Street Food Remix coming May 2017. Authored by Jacqueline Briggs Martin and June Jo-Lee (Readers To Eaters).
From the publisher:
Chef Roy Choi calls himself a "street cook."
He wants outsiders, low-riders,
kids, teens, shufflers and skateboarders,
to have food cooked with care, with love,
with sohn maash.

"Sohn maash" is the flavors in our fingertips. It is the love and cooking talent that Korean mothers and grandmothers mix into their handmade foods. For Chef Roy Choi, food means love. It also means culture, not only of Korea where he was born, but the many cultures that make up the streets of Los Angeles, where he was raised. So remixing food from the streets, just like good music--and serving it up from a truck--is true to L.A. food culture. People smiled and talked as they waited in line. Won't you join him as he makes good food smiles?

Jacqueline Briggs Martin, author of the Caldecott Medal winner, Snowflake Bentleyas well as Farmer Will Allen and the Growing Table, and Alice Waters and the Trip to Delicious continues her "Food Heros" series with Chef Roy Choi, on people who change what and how we eat. Together with food ethnographer June Jo Lee and internationally renowned graffiti artist Man One, they bring an exuberant celebration of street food and street art.
