News: A conversation with Barbara Kingsolver

Speaking of Faith, a public radio program, had Barbara Kingsolver as a guest this week in a broadcast titled "Ethics of Eating." You may recognize her as the author of Posionwood Bible, Animal Dreams, or Prodigal Summer, but she has recently published Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, a wildly successful non-fiction narrative about her family's year of eating only what they could grow themselves or find nearby. I'll be talking more about her book in a couple weeks (she is able to articulate the life philosophy of knowing-where-your-food-comes-from so much better than I). If you're interested in downloading this recent broadcast, you can find it at http://speakingoffaith.publicradio.org/programs/ethicsofeating/index.shtml. I highly recommend it.

I finally had a chance to listen to the radio program. Very informative! Also great to Barbara's "voice" as a real person. :-)

I checked with our local library, and her book is out, of course, so I've reserved it. Looking forward to reading it.
