Internationally-celebrated nature writer, agrarian activist, and ethnobiologist Gary Paul Nabhan is famous for celebrating the links between biodiversity and cultural diversity. With his latest book, Food from the Radical Center: Healing Our Land and Communities, Dr. Nabhan demonstrates how our polarized society can be made whole through the grass roots, community-based restoration of food-producing landscapes.
The Seed Library of Pima County Public Library will mark the publication of Food from the Radical Center with a presentation by the author, followed by a book sale and signing. Refreshments will be served.
Food from the Radical Center breaks fresh ground by bringing together diverse groups of people—ranging from land managers and botanists to indigenous harvesters, to PCPL’s Seed Librarians—as they work to restore America’s iconic foods and their landscapes. Widely recognized as the father of the local food movement, the award-winning author is the Kellogg Endowed Chair at the University of Arizona’s Southwest Center; his many honors include a MacArthur “Genius” award, a Lannan Literary Fellowship, and the John Burroughs Medal for nature writing.
