I hope you listened to Think the other day when Krys Boyd talked with Dr. James McWilliams about his new book Just Food: Where Locavores Get It Wrong and How We Can Truly Eat Responsibly. You can still download the podcast but, better yet, you can make plans to hear Dr. McWilliams at the Dallas Institute of Culture and Humanities on November 6th from 6:30—8:00 p.m.
Dr. McWilliams will be joined by spokespersons from other environmental fields and the panel will discuss such topics as “What does it truly mean to eat responsibly?” There will be an opening reception at 6:00 p.m. and Dr. McWilliams will be signing copies of his book. It’s a bargain: Institute & Forum Members: $20, Nonmembers: $25, Member Teachers: $7. 214 871-2440. See you there.
