Sustainable Book Club – "The Omnivore’s Dilemma" by Michael Pollan

On Thursday evening, the library hosted the Island-Wide Sustainable Book Club Discussion. 15 people gathered to discuss Michael Pollan’s book, “The Omnivore’s Dilemma”.

You can find a review of the book by visiting the library’s catalog, and the Sierra Club produced a useful discussion guide including links to other related resources (an interview with the author, articles, etc…) that you may find interesting.

As the meeting wrapped-up, a few stragglers continued to talk about television commercials and how they affected their parent’s choices of food and consumer products. Below are some commercials from the 50’s and 60’s that you can watch, courtesy of the Internet Archive.
