Up next for you Non-Fiction book lovers is a little book that proclaims itself to be an instant classic. Sting is very impressed with the agricultural theories of this Columbia Professor. He says so on in his blurb on the hardcover edition: “The Vertical Farm is a world-changing innovation whose time has come. This visionary book provides a blueprint for securing the world’s food supply and at the same time solving one of the gravest environmental crises facing us today.” So read along with us and tell us what you think. Is Sting correct? Has Dr. Despommier solved the worlds food, water and energy crises? In any case, it’s sure to be good food for thought to go along with all the food for our bellies as we celebrate eating, er, Thanksgiving next week.
The Pollard Library Non Fiction Book Club meets at 6:30pm on the first Thursday of every month and is free an open to the public. Copies of the books to be discussed are available for patrons to borrow at the 1st floor check out. We will be discussing The Vertical Farm on December 4th at 6:30pm.
