Join local author Cathy Stanton for a presentation and conversation about her new book, Food Margins, Lessons from an Unlikely Grocer.

Stanton says:

"Food Margins: Lessons from an Unlikely Grocer tells the story of my involvement in a small food co-op in Orange, Massachusetts, one of the poorest towns in one of the wealthiest American states. Part memoir and part history lesson, the book traces the tangled economic and political histories of the plantation, the factory, and the supermarket through the life of one New England town and tells the story of a rural community imagining and creating a viable alternative to the mainstream in a time of increasingly urgent need to build a more socially and ecologically just food system.

Cathy Stanton teaches at Tufts University in Boston and is the past board chair of local food co-op, Quabbin Harvest.

Free and open to the public. Register by calling 978-249-9515 or via this link.
