“Our Changing Menu” presentation with co-author Carrie Koplinka-Loehr.

Join us on Wednesday, April 6 at 7:00pm via Zoom for a presentation by Carrie Koplinka-Loehr discussing “Our Changing Menu,” a book she co-authored with Danielle L. Eiseman and Michael P. Hoffmann. The book explores how climate change impacts items on our menu: avocados, wine, coffee, and much more. It furthers the conversation by examining how farmers are trying to save our food. It is eye-opening: bring your curiosity about food and its connection to our changing climate.
