Gary Nabhan speaking tonight at Octavia Books

Hear authors Gary Nabhan and Kurt Friese at Octavia Books (513 Octavia Street, 504.899.READ), tonight, 11/18/09, at 6 pm.  Nabhan is a professor of sustainable environments at Northern Arizona State University; he writes & thinks about cultural and environmental adaptation as it relates to food. 

Nabhan’s 2001 book Coming Home to Eat is a fascinating account of his attempts to “eat locally” in the middle of the Arizona desert; it changed the way I thought about native foods (this was long before “locavore” became a buzzword, before random suburbanites started worrying about “food miles”).

Kurt Friese is a chef, educator, and author of Slow Foods in the Heartland.
