This is a FREE event but we ask that you RSVP.
Join us for the L&T Book Club as we read Wendell Berry’s 1977 classic ‘The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture’ in the month of February. Farmer, author, and poet Wendell Berry is one of the most influential voices in the local food movement. His agrarian philosophy, cultural critiques, and emphasis on creating local thriving communities has been deeply formational to the work of Land & Table.

From the book:
“There can be no such thing as a “global village.” No matter how much one may love the world as a whole, one can live fully in it only by living responsibly in some small part of it.”
The Land & Table book club is a way to engage with the core ideas and topics that are motivating a new generation to create a more resilient food system and vibrant local community life. We’ll be reading books about: eating local, self-reliant living, agrarian culture, growing food, culinary history, community resilience, going back-to-the-land, and more. This is not a book club that will be technical in nature. And if you don’t have a green thumb, you’ll still feel at home. You don’t have to grow your own food or be a homesteader or farmer to enjoy these books. But…you do have to be curious about reviving your connection with the land, with other people, and with the food you eat. And the reality is: tending to those connections is important for all of us. We meet on the first Thursday of each month and welcome anyone to our meetings – even if you have not read the book we will be discussing
WHEN: Thursday, March 2 (6:30 – 8pm)
WHERE: Bedford Central Library, 321 N Bridge St Bedford, VA 24523
WHO: Anyone! All are welcome – even if you did not read the book.
If you or your family members are under the weather, or not feeling well, we ask that you stay home and rest 🙂
