This event has been rescheduled for Saturday, January 19 at 7 pm.
Virginia Sole-Smith will be here on Friday, November 16th at 7:00 p.m. to read and discuss her book The Eating Instinct: Food Culture, Body Image and Guilt in America.
The Eating Instinct visits kitchen tables around America to tell Sole-Smith’s own story, as well as the stories of women recovering from weight loss surgery, of people who eat only nine foods, of families with unlimited grocery budgets and those on food stamps. Every struggle is unique. But Sole-Smith shows how they’re also all products of our modern food culture. And they’re all asking the same questions: How did I learn to eat this way? Why is it so hard to feel good about food? And how can I make it better?
