Featuring: Sarah Elton and J. B. MacKinnon

Feast on a menu of forward-thinking ideas about the state of the planet, with new titles by food writer Sarah Elton and by J. B. MacKinnon, the bestselling author who coined the term ‘the 100- mile diet.’ Hosted by Käthe Lemon.

Sarah Elton presents Consumed, a journey through fields and farms on four continents, investigating the potential and very real threats to the world’s food supply. Sarah Elton appears with the support of glasswaters foundation.

J. B. MacKinnon’s new book, The Once and Future World, steps back in time to look for the wilderness we’ve forgotten, and comes back with an eye-opening account of nature as it was, as it is—and as it could be.

This event is sponsored by Avenue magazine.
