Culinary Historians | Sweet Greeks: First Generation Immigrant Confectioners in the Heartland
Sunday January 17, 2021: 4:00pm to 5:30pm
Author Ann Flesor Beck, a third-generation confectioner, will discuss her new book, Sweet Greeks. Flesor’s grandfather, Gus Flesor, came to the U.S. from Greece in 1901 and settled in Tuscola, IL, where he learned the confectioner’s trade and opened a shop that still stands on Main St.
An engaging blend of family memoir and Midwest history, Sweet Greeks tells how Greeks became candy makers to the nation, one shop at a time.
