Unfortunately, our gracious host, Poppy Tooker, suffered a "coronary epsiode" this past week and is currently recovering.
"Poppy Tooker is recovering from procedures related to a coronary episode earlier this week," a statement issued by her family said. "She is resting comfortably with family and friends. Poppy is eager to return to the kitchen and to teaching cooking classes, interviewing the most interesting people in food, and signing her recently released book, 'Louisiana Eats!'"
As a result, Ms. Tooker will not be able to join us for the event, and we are presently looking for a new venue. While the format will be more of an informal lecture, Dr. Plotkin would love to have you join us, and we will keep you posted as to the new location for the lecture in New Orleans on Saturday night. If you have already registered for the event on the Eventbrite page, we would be happy to refund your $20 tax-deductible donation to the Amazon Conservation Team; please reply to this email if you wish to receive a refund. If you prefer not to receive a refund, your tax-deductible donation to ACT will be noted as such, and we would be so very appreciative for your continued support!
Please stay tuned for more information during the latter part of this week. We look forward to seeing you soon!
