Amanda Little - The Fate of Food: What We'll Eat in a Bigger, Hotter, Smarter World — in conversation with Joe Yonan — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, June 12, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

An award-winning journalist and professor at Vanderbilt, Little spent three years traveling the world to find the answer to one of our most pressing questions: how will we be able to sustainably feed a population of nine or ten billion people? In her thorough and ultimately hopeful investigation, Little takes us to sites ranging from Wisconsin apple orchards and famine-stricken regions of Ethiopia to a remote-control organic farm in Shanghai, a U.S.-Army lab, and a California sewage plant, exploring options such as GMOs, permaculture, and substitutes for animal meat, and showing how scientists, farmers, engineers, activists, and other innovators are working to develop new approaches to food production that will eventually reinvent the world’s food system. Little will be in conversation with Joe Yonan, food and dining editor of The Washington Post.
