Snack Story

Who doesn't love potato chips? We'll eat 'em in just about any variety—plain, barbecue, salt and vinegar, dill pickle, sour cream and onion, etc., etc. You might even say we're connoisseurs of fine fried taters. We've even had friends and family ship us bags of our favorite regional chips (Ever tried crab-flavored chips? We have.) But of course none of this would be possible without the eureka moment of one George Crum, the New York chef who invented the potato chip in 1853. At 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, bring your kids to the Paul Laurence Dunbar Lancaster-Kiest Branch Library, 2008 E. Kiest Blvd., to hear Crum's inspirational story at a reading of the beautifully illustrated, Bluebonnet Award-winning children's book George Crum and the Saratoga Chip. Just remember: you will leave hungry. Call 214-670-1952.
Tue., Sept. 18, 3:30 p.m.
