May 19—7pm—Diet for a Hot Planet by Anna Lappé
Please join SFNYC and Anna Lappé at Book Court at 163 Court Street in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn to discuss Ms. Lappé's new book. We will have the opportunity to help Ms. Lappé create the discussion guide for the book--come give your feedback!
In Diet for a Hot Planet: The Climate Crisis at the End of Your Fork and What You Can Do About it, Anna Lappé deftly explains the links between our global food system and climate change and offers ideas and inspiration for making sustainable food choices that can provide a catalyst for transforming the environment.
In this engaging and controversial new book, Anna argues that if we are serious about addressing climate change, we have to talk about food. She exposes the interests resisting this conversation and the spin-tactics employed to avoid it. Lappé also presents a vision of a future in which our food system is a key part of healing the planet—and the climate.
Nearly forty years ago, Anna Lappé's mother, Frances Moore Lappé, wrote Diet for a Small Planet—a book that sparked a revolution in the way we eat and see the world. Today, Anna picks up the conversation, educating and inspiring a new generation. Ms. Lappé lives in Brooklyn with her husband and daughter. Learn more at www.takeabite.cc.
