For the past twenty years, Michael Pollan has been writing books and articles about the places where the human and natural worlds intersect: food, agriculture, gardens, drugs and architecture. An “ethical-eating guru” and fierce advocate of sustainable agriculture and living, Pollan is one of the most compelling voices on subjects ranging from environment to business to health. He is the author of In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto, The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals, The Botany of Desire: A Plant’s-Eye View of the World, Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual, and Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation. Pollan teaches at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. This program is a lecture titled The Omnivore’s Solution: In Defense of Food.
