In Defense of Food by Michael PollanBook Club

Pick up a copy of In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan and join AUSB for a book club chat on Tuesdsay, July 26 at 12 p.m., or on Wednesday, August 17 at 6:00 p.m. From Pollan’s website: “Food. There’s plenty of it around, and we all love to eat it. So why should anyone need to defend it? Because most of what we’re consuming today is not food, and how we’re consuming it — in the car, in front of the TV, and increasingly alone — is not really eating. Instead of food, we’re consuming “edible foodlike substances” — no longer products of nature but of food science.”
