Bookshelf Non-fiction Bookclub: Cooked (Thursday, August 1)
Hey everybody, it's been a while! I've found the perfect non-fiction book for our next book club meeting. It's perfect not only because the author is a great writer, food historian, cook, and food industry critic, but because he will be appearing in Guelph on September 14. The book is Cooked, the author is Michael Pollan, and the first three people who purchase the book for a book club and mention our Twitter handle (#reallongtweets) will receive a voucher for a free ticket to see Michael Pollan, Sarah Elton, and Evan Fraser's talk at the University of Guelph as part of the Eden Mills Writers' Festival.
In our little book club we have talked about everything from politics to economics to chaos theory to food. Food makes for great conversation, as our hearts, minds, mouths and stomachs are very dependent on this topic. Food politics can make for a contentious conversation; however, healthy debate in this case can lead to healthier lives.
Stay tuned for details on some fun culinary activities happening in the eBar and Greenroom kitchen on August 1. The members of the book club are a smart, fun, and respectful group, and all are welcome. I hope to see you on August 1.
