1-17-12: Michael Pollan

January 17, 2012 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

Michael Pollan has been writing about food, farms, health, and diet–or, as his website describes it, “the places where nature and culture intersect”–for two and a half decades.  He’s won awards for all four of his best-selling books, including 2006’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals and 2008’s In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto.

Pollan writes regularly for the New York Times Magazine. He’s the John S. and James L. Knight Professor of Journalism at the University of California Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, and he’s the director of the Knight Program in Science and Environmental Journalism.

Sheilah talks to him in advance of his appearance at tonight’s edition of the Baltimore Speakers Series presented by Stevenson University.

Web extra: Michael Pollan talks about how he first became interested in food writing, and what he’ll cover in his next book.
