WEDNESDAY: Outstanding in our Field
Seats for the Brooklyn Premiere of Food, Inc., which we’re hosting at The Bell House tonight are sold out, but there will be some standing room only tickets sold for $10 on a first come, first served basis. We’ll open the doors for standing room at 7:45, movie at 8, Q&A following with director Robert Kenner, and $3 beers from Brooklyn Brewery. The movie opens on Friday, and to tide you over we have a copy of the book Food, Inc., to give away. It’s a companion guide to the film that outlines how to change our food system, with essays by Michael Pollan, Marion Nestle and Joel Salatin, among others. The twelfth reader to correctly identify the four plants that are profiled in Pollan’s Botany of Desire wins a free copy. We’ll also have books for sale at the Bell House.
