When sustainable food activist Michael Pollan takes the stage for his Philadelphia Speakers Series engagement on Monday, Jan. 23, we would like to ask him some questions from NewsWorks readers. Lay ’em on us.
As an author and journalist, Pollan has been writing for more than 20 years about food, agriculture, gardens, drugs, and architecture. Do you have any burning questions about sustainable agriculture, our connection to the the food industry, or more generally the intersection of humans and the nartural world?
Pollan is the author of the bestsellers “In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto” and “The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals.” He was featured in the documantary “Food, Inc.” in 2008. And in 2009, PBS premiered a two-hour documentary based on his earlier book “The Botany of Desire: A Plant’s-Eye View of the World.”
His most recent book is “Food Rules,” a set of memorable rules for eating wisely, featuring illustrations by Maira Kalman.
