Michael Pollan @ Enoch Pratt Central Library

Michael Pollan talks about his most recent book, In Defense of Food.

Michael Pollan's last book, The Omnivore's Dilemma, launched a national conversation about the American way of eating. Now In Defense of Food shows us how to change it, one meal at a time.

Pollan proposes a new answer to the question of what we should eat that comes down to seven simple but liberating words: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." He shows us how we can start making thoughtful food choices that will enrich our lives, enlarge our sense of what it means to be healthy, and bring pleasure back to eating.

Tony Geraci, Director of Food Service, Baltimore City Public Schools, will lead the evening's "conversation" with Michael Pollan.

Seating is limited; doors will open at 5:30 p.m.
