All the seats for the Michael Pollan talk at Goucher have been claimed. But, don’t worry, you can still see him if you don’t have tickets.
The Towson college will be live streaming the event, which starts at 8 p.m. Tuesday (April 13), so you can hear what the bestselling author has to say. Pollan, a well-known critic of the world’s industrial food system, isn’t known for mincing words. One of his most popular books is Omnivore's Dilemma.
To watch the lecture via computer, go to Goucher’s home page on Tuesday. There will be prompts for logging onto the real-time streaming. The video will not be archived, so you have to watch the talk at 8, says Kristen Keener, Goucher’s director of media relations.
I got tickets weeks ago and will also blog about it. Right now, I’m reading Pollan's book In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto. The short opening paragraph is powerful: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."
But I love that Pollan isn’t anti-meat. He recommends making it a side dish. Works for me. I’m so susceptible to these food arguments. Since seeing the film Food Inc., I can only eat organic yogurt by Stoneyfield!
