Thursday, April 21, 2016
6 - 8 pm
Potluck dinner followed by book discussion
Share a potluck dinner and then join in the discussion of Lentil Underground: Renegade Farmers and the Future of Food in America by Liz Carlisle.
Lentil Underground tells the story of a group of renegade farmers and food pioneers who have challenged the chemically-based food chain in America through their movement to grow organic lentils. This book takes readers inside the efforts of a small rural community in the country’s farm belt that has railed against corporate agribusiness to develop a million dollar enterprise. It's the perfect book to read while celebrating The International Year of Pulses in 2016.
All are welcome, whether you’ve read the book or not.
The book is available in paperback (at Boswells with a Book Club discount) and through the Milwaukee Public Library.
