Event

Words & Wine with Laurie David, Author of The Family Dinner
Laurie David did not start out to be an activist of any kind: in fact, she had a fabulous career in the entertainment world as the talent manager for the Letterman Show and then as VP of development for sitcoms and comedy for 20th Century Fox.  One breakfast with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr and her world changed: she began to gather together the actors, comedians and media stars she knew with prominent environmentalists, with plans to get the world informed and in motion to combat our environmental problems.  In 2004  she co-founded the Stop Global Warming Virtual March and in 2006 published her first book: Stop Global Warming: The Solution is You!  David went on to produce the academy award winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth in 2006 and her work has been profiled in everything from Vanity Fair (who declared her "the Bono of climate change") to Grist.org to Oprah, CNN, Elle, Self, People and The Today Show.  David's new book traces her interest in "the family environment", and the role that the kitchen plays in teaching values of health, sustainability and respect.  Research has shown that a multitude of parenting worries--from drugs and alcohol to obesity to bad grades--can be improved b the simple act of sitting down to dinner with the family.   As a busy working mom David knows how hard it is to make the "family dinner" commitment, but in her new book she outlines the reasons, recipes and tools to do so.  Join us for an onstage interview of David by Warren Etheredge, as they discuss her work and her new book The Family Dinner: Great Ways to Connect With Your Kids, One Meal at a Time.
