Leader of Small Planet Institute to speak Nov. 28

11/21/2006

Anna Lappe, a nationally recognized author and public speaker on food politics, sustainable agriculture and globalization, will present "Eat GRUB! Putting Justice on Your Plate" at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 28, in 100 Laws Hall. The talk is free and open to the public.

Her first book, the bestselling Hope's Edge: The Next Diet for a Small Planet, chronicles social movements on five continents addressing the root causes of hunger and poverty.

Named one of Time Magazine's 2006 Eco-Who's Who, Lappe has been featured in The New York Times, Gourmet, O Magazine, Food & Wine, and Vibe, among other outlets.

With Frances Moore Lappe, she leads the Cambridge-based Small Planet Institute, a collaborative network for research and popular education, and the Small Planet Fund, which has raised more than a quarter of a million dollars for democratic social movements worldwide since 2002.

Her talk is sponsored by Students for Peace and Justice, the Institute for Environmental Sciences and the Miami Oxford Organic Network.
