You are cordially invited to attend a book talk, signing, and celebration of the release of the new book by Michele Simon, Appetite for Profit: How the Food Industry Undermines Our Health and How to Fight Back.

In recent years, many concerned Americans have begun to ask: Who is to blame for the growing public health crisis of obesity and diet-related illnesses that plague this country? In Appetite for Profit, author Michele Simon, a leading public health lawyer and nutrition advocate, exposes the truth about the major food corporations’ public relations campaigns and lobbying tactics that undermine our health, while offering viable alternative solutions. Come and help celebrate the book's release in her first book talk on the west coast. Healthy refreshments will be served.

Library Journal calls Appetite for Profit "essential...a convincing call to action. A follow-up to Eric Schlosser's Fast Food Nation and Marion Nestle's Food Politics.” Marion Nestle has made the book required reading for her students, calling it, "brilliant."
