Memorial Library presents the film, "Fresh: New Thinking about What We’re Eating," and a faculty-led discussion.

Thursday, March 11, 2010
5:00-7:00 p.m.
Memorial Library Commons, Room 460
Free and Open to the Public

Go Big Read and UW Memorial Library invites you to please join us for an engaging discussion with Professors Jack Kloppenburg and Jill Harrison from the UW-Madison Department of Community and Environmental Sociology, following screening of a new film, Fresh: New Thinking about What We’re Eating, by Ana Sofia Joanes. The film examines the food system and the sustainable agriculture movement.  Among several notable individuals, the film features Michael Pollan, author of In Defense of Food and The Omnivore’s Dilemma, and Wisconsin’s own Will Allen, urban farmer activist and founder of Growing Power in Milwaukee.  This event, held in conjunction with the UW-Madison's Go Big Read common-reading program and sponsored by Memorial Library, will provide a forum for students, faculty, staff, and community members to share ideas and perspectives related to the film and In Defense of Food.  Refreshments will be served.  

For more information about this event, contact: Rebecca Payne, 262-2387,
