Food Inc Documentary is out, Read the book!!

I am really late in plugging this, but the Food Inc documentary is out! Though, it is not playing anywhere near Milwaukee, but opened in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, and Vegas. Hopefully, it will do well enough that it will become widespread throughout the country. From the few reviews I read, the movie is shocking and powerful in the way that Fast Food Nation made people recoil. But fear not, your local bookshop should have copies on hand, I know we do.

The momentum that authors like Michael Pollan, Bill McKibben, Eric Scholosser and Barbara Kingsolver seemed to have re-kicked off, seems to only be picking up. They started the conversation, the book & movie package should continue it. Questioning where our food comes from and what is our food made from are only the tip of the iceberg. I will write more on this in a later posting along with a handful of new books out but for now here is the trailer.
