In a time when we’re obsessed with what to eat, Adam Gopnik, the award-winning writer for The New Yorker, and author of the beloved Paris to the Moon has launched a quest for the meaning of food. The Table Comes First: Family, France and the Meaning of Food is Adam Gopnik’s new conversation about the way we eat now.  He traces how we’ve lost sight of a timeless truth: that what goes on around the table— families, friends, lovers coming together, or breaking apart; conversation across the simplest or grandest board— is always more important than what we put on the table.

Adam Gopnik has been writing for The New Yorker since 1986. During his tenure at the magazine, he has written fiction and humor pieces, book reviews, Profiles, reporting pieces, and more than a hundred stories for The Talk of the Town and Comment.

Gopnik became The New Yorker’s art critic in 1987. In 1990, he collaborated with Kirk Varnedoe, the former curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, on the exhibition “High & Low: Modern Art and Popular Culture,” and co-wrote the book of the same name. In 1995, Gopnik moved to Paris and began writing the Paris Journal column for the magazine. An expanded collection of his essays from Paris, Paris to the Moon, appeared in 2000. He is author of the adventure novel, The King in the Window, and edited the anthology Americans in Paris, for the Library of America.

Gopnik has won the National Magazine Award for Essays and for Criticism three times, and also the George Polk Award for Magazine Reporting.

Ed Zwick is an acclaimed director and producer whose films are heralded for addressing difficult moral issues.  They include Glory, Legends, Blood Diamond and Defiance.  Zwick shared the Oscar for best picture for producing Shakespeare in Love and won an Oscar nomination for producing Traffic.  His groundbreaking television shows include Thirtysomething and My So-Called Life.
