The Bay Area Book Festival presents a timely conversation on the uncertain future of the restaurant industry. Join in as experts discuss the devastating new reality that Covid-19 has caused for restaurants and restaurant workers. How can we support these workers, many of whom are minorities, people of color, and women? Speakers include local activist Saru Jayaraman, president of One Fair Wage, an organization fighting for higher wages for tipped workers; Caleb Zigas of La Cocina, an organization dedicated to creating equity in business ownership for women, immigrants, and people of color in the restaurant industry; and Soleil Ho, restaurant critic at the San Francisco Chronicle and former co-host of the Racist Sandwich podcast. The moderator is Davia Nelson of NPR’s Kitchen Sisters podcast.
