New York Times best-selling author Michael Pollan will speak at a one-night-only event to promote his newest book
New York Times best selling author and forefather of the modern movement against industrialized food is coming to the Twin Cities for a one-night-only event to promote his newest book, Cooked: a Natural History of Transformation. The event will be held May 2 at Beth El Synagogue in St. Louis Park. Tickets are still available, with several purchase options available.
The event will feature several VIP-level tickets, which will include a pre-event gathering with Michael Pollan, food provided by chef Stewart Woodman of Heidi's, and copies of Pollan's new book.
According to the event page, part of the proceeds of the event will benefit Appetite for Change, a north Minneapolis nonprofit that "uses growing, cooking, and eating food as vehicles for social change."
Michael Pollan is the author of several New York Times best-selling, books including Food Rules, In Defense of Food, The Omnivore's Dilemma, and The Botany of Desire. He was also involved in the 2008 documentary Food, Inc.
