Next Slow Food Seattle Books Meeting: March 10

Join us for our next Slow Food Seattle Books meeting on March 10, 2011 at Roy Street Coffee and Tea on Capitol Hill!

Our March book club selection is Paul Greenberg's Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food. Greenberg describes how four fish--salmon, tuna, bass, and cod--"dominate the modern seafood market." He takes a culinary journey around the world and examines how the wild fish industry has become increasingly industrialized over the last 30 years. He also shows how we can heal the ocean and make sustainable seafood the rule rather than the exception. This book is sure to generate great passion and discussion, so join us! This will be an active, open conversation and all are welcome - please join us even if you haven't had a chance to finish the book! We'll be meeting from 6-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 10. Roy Street Coffee and Tea is located at 700 Broadway East. Limited free parking is available in the lot below.
