Trends in healthful, local food will be the topic of the featured speakers at Thursday’s annual meeting of the Friends of the Fairfield Public Library.

The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. in the Memorial Room of the Fairfield Public Library, corner of Old Post and Post roads.

The group will hear from Christy Colasurdo, co-author of “The Connecticut Farm Table Cookbook,” and Analiese Paik, founder and editor of “Fairfield Green Food Guide.”

“The Connecticut Farm Table Cookbook” chronicles the state’s farm-to-table movement through farmer and chef profiles, local lore and photographs, according to publicity for the event. Colasurdo is a former special sections editor at New York magazine, an award-winning writer and the co-founder of a company delivering foods from small Vermont farms to customers’ homes.

Paik is a local-sustainable food advocate, whose “Fairfield Green Food Guide” is an award-winning digital news publication that promotes eating locally and sustainably grown food, the library publicity states. She is a graduate of the Institute of Culinary Education, and previously worked in marketing management in the financial services industry. Paik has been written about in various Connecticut newspapers and magazines and was spotlighted as a “foodie who makes a difference” in Every Day with Rachael Ray magazine.

The Friends of the Fairfield Public Library will conduct a brief business meeting preceding the speaker program, including electing the proposed slate of the 2015-16 Board of Directors. Members and prospective members are invited to attend.
