About In Defense of Food

If you’ve ever wondered why eating -- or, more specifically, eating right -- has to be so complicated, then you will be very interested in September’s Book of the Month selection.

In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto, describes in highly-readable and fascinating detail how science and politics have impacted the way we eat in America, how the resulting “Western Diet” has impacted our health, and, most importantly, how we can alleviate some of our 21st Century confusion about food. Best of all, the story is told with good humor, and with insight that extends well beyond the realms of science and politics.

Join us in reading and discussing In Defense of Food -- a delicious way to start the season!

Michael Pollan is best known for his 2006 book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma. Stay tuned for more information about the author.
