An Evening with Barbara Kingsolver
Lecture and book signing
Thursday, May 3rd, 6:30 pm
The Great Hall at Cooper Union
7 East 7th Street at Third Avenue
New York City
Barbara Kingsolver, bestselling author of The Poisonwood Bible, will be speaking at The Cooper Union's Great Hall about her new book, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, which chronicles the year she and her family vowed to spend eating a locally-produced diet and avoiding food transported by the use of fossil fuel. This local-food project was the culmination of Kingsolver's longstanding conviction that America has lost its way when it comes to the production and consumption of food. Kingsolver's book makes a compelling case for putting the kitchen back at the center of family life and diversified farms at the center of the American diet.
