"From the Garden onto the Plate: One Writer's Path"
Michael Pollan at Columbia
March 23, 2009
Columbia University, 116th Street and Broadway
New York City
6:00 pm Low Rotunda
Michael Pollan has been called a "post-wilderness nature writer" for his articles and books about the messy places where the natural and human worlds intersect--places like the garden, buildings, domesticated plants and agriculture. In his talk, he will trace the path of his writing from his graduate school encounters (here at Columbia) with Thoreau and Emerson through his work on the ecology and politics of eating.
