Barbara Kingsolver and her husband Steven Hopp were in Tucson to share their new book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life. The book chronicles a year in which their family vowed to eat only foods that were produced locally. Part memoir and part investigative journalism, the book encourages and inspires all of us to try eating locally and seasonally. The event was a benefit for Native Seed/SEARCH, a local non profit which works to protect crop diversity and to celebrate cultural diversity.
