Virtual event description:  

Riddle me this: is the time ripe to bring food-themed riddles back into fashion? Find out in this panel discussion with the curators and researchers behind the Exhibition “Riddles and Riddling Ways”.

Bonding over food and games is a practice that has been around for centuries. Many 18th- and 19th-century communities gathered for dinners bountifully infused with play of all kinds to further their enjoyment of each other’s company. Among their favourite pastimes during meals was telling and solving riddles. Join Nathalie Cooke and guests for a discussion of riddles in their many forms – illustrated plates, edifying pictorial puzzles, “Conundrum Suppers” and many more.

Rsvp information to come.
