Organizer/Author
"Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These seven simple words sum up the extensive research and profound conclusions of Michael Pollan, an acclaimed science writer who has challenged the way Americans think about eating. In books like The Omnivore's Dilemma (2007) and In Defense of Food (2008), Pollan demonstrates how difficult it is to live by this simple advice, given today's complex world of food production. Pollan argues for "real food" rather than "edible foodlike substances," and proves to be an entertaining guide of our supermarket aisles, all in an effort to encourage the best food choices to sustain our bodies, our environment, and our culture.

Presented in association with the College of Letters & Science's On the Same Page program.

Price: $16/$24/$30
