Maybe you’ve heard of Anna Lappé, or maybe, like it did when I first heard it, her name rang a bell and you couldn’t quite remember why. Her mother, Frances Moore Lappé, wrote “Diet for a Small Planet” in 1971. My softcover copy of that bestseller—my first recipe book, with torn, dog-eared, and yellowed pages—is still handy in my recipe book cupboard.
Anna Lappé now has a new bestselling book of her own called “Diet for a Hot Planet: The Climate Crisis at the End of Your Fork and What You Can Do About It.”
Anna Lappé will be the featured speaker at a conference this Saturday at the Unitarian Universalist Church West in Brookfield. The conference, called “Nourishing Community, Creating Sustainability” is an all day affair that includes workshops, a special dinner, and movies for adults and children.
All are invited.
I’m looking forward to dinner and a great event. I hope you’ll consider joining me. You do not have to be there all day to find something rewarding.
