Explorations Read-Aloud: “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle” by Barbara Kingsolver

Friday, February 11, 2022 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

Every Friday, at 11:00 am, on the library’s YouTube Channel and Facebook Page, the library will stream a brand new recording of local thespian, Joseph Coté reading aloud selections from a wide variety of fascinating and entertaining books of fiction and non-fiction. This is a program to help keep our community connected to books during the pandemic when we are unable to meet in person.

For February 11, Coté will read aloud from Barbara Kingsolver’s book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. Summary: Since its publication in 2007, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle has captivated readers with its blend of memoir and journalistic investigation. When Barbara Kingsolver and her family moved from suburban Arizona to rural Appalachia, they took on a new challenge: to spend a year on a locally-produced diet, paying close attention to the provenance of all they consume. Concerned about the environmental, social, and physical costs of American food culture, they hoped to recover what Barbara considers our nation’s lost appreciation for farms and the natural processes of food production. In the new edition celebrating the 10th anniversary of this beloved work, Kingsolver, husband Steven Hopp, and their daughters Camille and Lily contribute new chapters taking stock of the last decade and how their decision to align their lives with the local food chain has continued to shape their destinies.
