Book People Hosting Jill Richardson

Tonight Book People is hosting Jill Richardson, activist and author of Recipe for America: Why Our Food System is Broken and What We Can Do to Fix It and the blog, for a discussion and food tasting. The event will be held from 7:00 to 9:00 tonight and is co-sponsored by Edible Austin. This event will feature farm fresh veggies and cheeses from the Austin Farmers’ Market and Rio’s Brazilian cheese breads. Locally brewed beverages from Saint Arnold’s Brewing and Zhi Tea will also be available.

Ms Richardson has been called “a fresh voice in the movement to create a healthier and sustainable food system” by Marion Nestle. I have not yet read her book but can say that the writing on her blog is informative, thoughtful, and well researched. I always learn something there. How many things can you say that about?

If you can’t make this event, Ms Richardson will also be speaking and signing books at the Austin Farmers’ Market on Saturday, November 7 from 10:00 to 1:00 (hosted by the Sustainable Food Center) and at Cafe Caffeine on Sunday, November 8 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm (hosted by the South Austin Food Co-op).

All of this makes has me feeling incredibly grateful to be living near Austin! Now let’s do what we can to help others have as many healthy, local food choices as we are blessed to have!
