Living and Laughing by The Chopsticks-Fork Principle

May 7, 2019 at 1:00 PM | New Vernon, NJ | Kemmerer Library-Harding Township
From a place of delight and good humor, the Chopsticks-Fork Principle encourages people to realize and understand (and laugh about) how we are all at least bi-cultural in a way that shatters stereotypes yet explains the generalizations. The talk is an invitation to first wonder “Can the Tooth Fairy survive the Melting Pot?” “Can you fail or succeed simultaneously in two cultures?” and “What happens when you have a sub-conscious but your (grand)mother doesn’t?” and then to explore how the discussion help listeners re-think their own cultural heritages.
