Pollan to discuss, sign book Saturday
"Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."
That's the advice journalist Michael Pollan offers in his new book, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto. Polly featured an interview earlier this week with the author about his new book.
Pollan - the author of the bestselling book, The Omnivore's Dilemma - suggests that if we would pay more for better, well-grown food, but buy less of it, we'll benefit ourselves, our communities, and the environment at large.
I picked up Pollan's book a few weeks ago, and it's on my list of books to read after I finish Barry Glassner's The Gospel of Food. But when I heard an NPR interview with Pollan last week, I skimmed through and read parts of the book - it's a hard book to put down.
Now locals will have a chance to hear from Pollan himself. Pollan will discuss and sign his book at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12 at the Joseph Beth Booksellers in Rookwood Plaza. The bookstore recommends getting line letters in advance, available with purchase of the book.
