Here are a couple book readings for those interested in the local food system, including one this Wednesday.
Slow Money NC founder Carol Hewitt has written a book, "Financing Our Foodshed," about how the group helped finance businesses of local food entrepreneurs, sustainable farmers, bakers, restaurateurs and others.
Her first book event is at 7 p.m. Wednesday at The Regulator Bookshop in Durham. If you cannot attend Wednesday's reading, Hewitt has three other readings across the Triangle:
- 2p.m. Saturday at McIntyre's Books in Fearington Village.
- 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Quail Ridge Books & Music in Raleigh.
- 7 p.m. May 29 at Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill.
Also worth noting is a reading this Friday in Durham with Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch. A champion of local food, Hauter's new book, "Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America," discusses the massive consolidation and corporate control of food production. She will be at Durham's The Regulator Bookshop at 7 p.m. Friday.
