Author Michael Pollan gave a great talk today in the CSM Theatre

Author Michael Pollan spoke in the CSM Theatre today from 12-1pm as part of the President's Lecture Series. Pollan is author of many books including The Omnivore's Dilemma, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto, and most recently, Food Rules.

There was a great turnout as students and staff filled the auditorium to hear Pollan speak about food and problems that arise for the western diet and/or processed food. His talk was brilliant, funny and engaging as he offered solutions to combat the obesity and diabetes epidemics here in the US. If you are looking for a good book to read over the summer. the Library carries several of his titles.
