SOLD OUT: Michael Pollan, Cooked

Tuesday, June 18, 2013 - 7:00pm

This event is sold out. Thank you to everyone who bought tickets!

Bookshop Santa Cruz presents bestselling author Michael Pollan (The Omnivore's Dilemma, Food Rules, The Botany of Desire), who will discuss his new book, Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation.

Pollan, named by Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world, explores the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen. He discovers the enduring power of the four classical elements—fire, water, air, and earth—to transform the stuff of nature into delicious things to eat and drink. In the course of his journey, he discovers that the cook occupies a special place in the world, standing squarely between nature and culture. Both realms are transformed by cooking, and so, in the process, is the cook.

COST: $31.00

INCLUDES: One ticket to the event and one copy of Pollan's new book, Cooked.

A ticket is needed to enter the event venue (Santa Cruz High), and there will be open seating at the theater. Tickets are numbered and will serve as your spot in the signing line.
