July 29, 2012 – 10:00 AM
Thank you to everyone who showed interest in the book club. Last month we read Slow Food Nation: Why Our Food Should be Good, Clean and Fair. It was an intense read that resulted in some very good discussion and ideas for Slow Food projects. The next book will be a little more contemporary with Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals. The book is available at Bookshop Santa Cruz, Capitola Book Café, as well as Amazon and other book retailers (also on several different e-readers!). We will meet again at Café Pergolesi on Sunday, July 29 at 10:00 AM, to have some good coffee, tea and discussion. If you are interested, please send an email to membership AT slowfoodsantacruz.com
April 29, 2012 – 10:00 AM
Slow Food Santa Cruz would like to invite you to join our newly formed book club where we will be reading a selection of books that align with the Slow Food mission of promoting Good, Clean and Fair food. To kick it off we will start by reading Slow Food Nation: Why our Food Should be Good Clean and Fair written by Carlo Petrini, founder of Slow Food, with a forward by Alice Waters. Each book club meeting will begin with a conversation about the content along with some discussion questions to help guide the conversation. At the end of the meeting, members will work together to choose the next book. We will be meeting every 2 months, with our first meeting being on Sunday April 29th at 10:00 am at Café Pergolesi in downtown Santa Cruz. When you get there, look for the group with the books and you will know where we are seated. Please email membership AT slowfoodsantacruz.com if you are interested in participating in the book club. Happy reading!
