Tom will be reading, discussing, and signing his new book, An Edible History of Humanity.We are delighted to welcome Tom Standage, author of the best-seller, A History of the World in 6 Glasses, and long time editor for the Economist here to Bookshop Santa Cruz. Turning his eye from technology and business and instead viewing food as the true common and driving fuel that runs the world, Standage’s new title is as enlightening as it is consistently entertaining. “Society is what it eats…Tapping into fields as diverse as economics, anthropology, archaeology, and genetics, [Standage] asks a simple question: Which foods have had the most influence on shaping the world we live in today?...It’s a tall order, impressively filled,” says Kirkus Reviews. This will be a book discussion and title you don’t want to miss, whether you are a foodie or an information gatherer, this book covers it all. Think Michael Pollan mixed in with Bill Bryson. Please join us for a reading, signing and audience Q&A with this brilliant and talented writer! (booksense)… (lisätietoja)
