The New Food Activism

If you live in the Los Angeles area and love lazy Saturdays at Vroman's Bookstore, stop by and listen to two book authors who care about food -- Robert Gottlieb and Erik Knutzen. While you're there, make sure to shop for some local artisanal items, including jams and preserves from Mothercluck.

Gottlieb, author of Food Justice, and Knutzen, of The Urban Homestead, will speak on “The New Food Activism” and how it relates to local efforts, such as the current plan to open a community-owned market in the Pasadena/Altadena area. The event is sponsored by the group behind the planned market -- the Arroyo Food Coop.  Items the Coop plans to put on its shelves will for sale at Vroman's.

Mothercluck Jams, Jellies and Preserves is proud to be a participant in this book signing and mini market. Stop by, say hello, and meet other people who care about their food and shopping locally.

The event is set for 1:30 p.m., Saturday, January 22, at Vroman's Bookstore, 695 E. Colorado in Pasadena.

See you there!
