Barbara Lewis interviews author Michael Pollan about the places where nature and culture intersect: on our plates, in our farms and gardens, and in the built environment. Q&A and book-signing to follow. Presenting sponsor: Wishard Health Services.
This presentation will kick-off the Perpetual Pitch-In Project, 48 hours of consecutive community meals throughout Central Indiana aimed at combating hunger. Both events are part of the 15th Annual Spirit & Place Festival, November 5-14, which celebrates the theme Food for Thought.
Named to the 2010 TIME 100, the magazine's annual list of the world's 100 most influential people, Pollan is the author of four New York Times bestsellers, including Food Rules: An Eater's Manual (2010) and The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals (2006). He appeared in a two-hour PBS special based on his book, The Botany of Desire, as well as in the documentary, Food, Inc., which received an Academy Award nomination.
