Cookbooks and Manuscripts virtual talks tapes

There are several upcoming talks (and past taped ones) on cookbooks and manuscripts: politics & cookbooks, Betty Crocker and Julia Child. This summer's celebration of 100 years since women earned the right to vote, resulted in three talks which were taped on suffrage cookbooks. Manuscripts are a rich source of culinary and medicinal recipes, several which sound interesting, plus taped past talks.
