Day 61 - Author - Michael Pollan
Current book I'm reading is the second book I have read by this author, American environmentalist, Michael Pollan, The Omnivore's Dilemma. About half way through it and unfortunately won't finish it for the bookclub discussion tomorrow night. Have finished Pollan's The Botany of Desire which I very much enjoyed. He is a great writer, has meticulously researched all his findings which are both fascinating and disturbing- how we are eating ourselves and our universe into a black hole. But he does give us cause to be optimistic - and now even Obama has read his book and is digging up the White House lawns to grow organic and local produce.
