Description

Michael Pollan joins us at Congregation Beth Elohim to discuss How to Change Your Mind with Burkhard Bilger, a staff writer at The New Yorker.

Each ticket includes a pre-signed paperback copy of How to Change Your Mind, which will be available for pickup at the event. Please note that there will not be a signing following the event.

Michael Pollan is the author of eight books, including How to Change Your Mind, Cooked, Food Rules, In Defense of Food, The Omnivore's Dilemma and The Botany of Desire, all of which were New York Times bestsellers. A longtime contributor to the New York Times Magazine, he also teaches writing at Harvard and the University of California, Berkeley where he is the John S. and James L. Knight Professor of Science Journalism. In 2010, Time magazine named him one of the one hundred most influential people in the world.

Burkhard Bilger has been a staff writer at The New Yorker since 2000, where his work has focused on food, science, and American subcultures. His pieces have included portraits of ginseng poachers, deep cave explorers, child bullriders, and a cheese-making nun, and have been anthologized nine times in the Best American series. Bilger's first book, Noodling for Flatheads (Scribner, 2000) was a finalist for the PEN/Martha Albrand Award, and he is at work on a book about his grandfather's experiences in WWII to be published by Alfred A. Knopf. Bilger is a Branford Fellow at Yale University.
