Refugee Services Texas Dallas

Refugee Services of Texas, which has its Dallas branch in Lake Highlands, will host a book discussion at The Wild Detectives in Bishop Arts Tuesday, Nov. 29.

Plated Stories: Legacies from Home to Table, the book of discussion, is a cookbook written by refugees, trafficking survivors and asylum seekers. The book also includes their personal stories along with recipes for their cultural dishes.

There are 20 stories and 50 recipes guests can read through.

One of the book’s contributors, Jane Gow, will share her story and a Vietnamese coffee demo with guests. Gow is also the founder of BeKinder Coffee. It’s an online, nonprofit coffee shop that believes “kindness is more than a quality – it is a calling,” according to the website.

Refugee Services of Texas’ Hope Goldman will also be a speaker during the event.

The event is free and open to the public, but RSVPs must be made here. Contact Hope Goldman for more details at hgoldman@rstx.org.
