Julia Child Says "Bon Appetit"

Julia Child was an American cook, author and television personality who introduced French cuisine and cooking techniques to America.  Join us to watch actress Linda Kenyon bring Julia to life and then discuss her personal history, her husband and her cooking, at Bernardsville Public Library on Sunday, February 9 at 2:00 pm

Julia Child was in the vanguard of "foodies," who, by changing America's taste, helped create modern American culture.  While her public face and voice became familiar to all of us, this play by Clay Teunis focuses on her private side, especially her relationship with her husband, Paul Child.  As Ms. Kenyon takes on Julia's hair, makeup, dress, voice and demeanor, it is clear that this play is a love story! 

Ms. Kenyon is an experienced television, stage and film actress whose special skills include impersonations of Eleanor Roosevelt and Babe Didrikson as well as Julia Child.  She received her training on the Arena Stage (Norman Gevanthor), the Folger Theatre (Franchelle Dorn), and the Poet & Peasant Professional Actors’ Workshop.

There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested.  Register online at and follow the link from Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
