About this Event

Session 1

Wed Sept 18, 5:30-7 PM at the Reher Center Gallery

Sinclair, Upton. 1906. The Jungle. (Any edition)

Free with suggested donation

A classic of investigative, muckraking reporting. With The Jungle, Sinclair effectively launched consumer awareness-- and outrage-- about the American food system. This book was published just a year before Reher’s Bakery opened and will help us to see Reher’s Bakery with new eyes. This first meeting will be accompanied by an optional bakery tour at 5 PM with an eye to the production of bread in the bakery’s early days.

This conversation will be co-facilitated by wine courtesy Kingston Wine Company.
