It’s been a busy spring and summer with many stops on the Consumed book tour. And while I’m taking the month of August for family (my cousin is here from Hong Kong!), food (the local bounty is here!) and the outdoors (cycling through the woods on an carless bike path!!) I am looking forward to an exciting event on September 14th at the Eden Mills Writers’ Festival. Michael Pollan and I will be speaking about food, culture, sustainability and our books. It’s an honour to have a chance to share the stage with a writer whose work I’ve admired for so long. So on my reading list for this month is Pollan’s new book, Cooked.
