Oysters 101: The Secrets NYC's Bivalves Harbor
rack open the history of oysters!

BHS Vice President of Collections and Curatorial Affairs Julie Golia leads a conversation with Billion Oyster Project Director of Education Ann Fraioli, chef and oyster farmer Kerry Heffernan, and Mark Kurlansky, author of The Big Oyster: History on the Half Shell.
