Christopher & Kerri
This past Thursday Christopher spoke live on the air with Krys Boyd, the host of “Think”, a show that airs on NPR affiliate KERA in Dallas. The hour long interview covers a range of interesting topics related to the economics of eating, and has caller initiated questions as well. You can click here, or download this interview for free as a podcast through your iTunes account. Enjoy!

From now until March 16, the nonprofit group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is giving away copies of “On a Dollar a Day” to five lucky people. All they’re asking is that you comment on their blog with your favorite frugal cruelty-free vegan tip; winners will be chosen at random from those who post. Good luck!

Have a wonderful Monday!
Publisher’s Weekly is saying that “On a Dollar a Day” is, “a sobering, personal consideration of hunger and poverty worldwide and in our own neighborhoods.” Click here and scroll down for the whole review!
In what I think is the first official review for “On a Dollar a Day”, Washington Times reviewer Claire Hopley contextualizes what the book adds to the growing discussion about our food system. In reference to our critique about the Thrifty Food Plan she writies,
“The analysis of why this well-intentioned program does not fully meet the needs of its intended beneficiaries is one of the most cogent parts of “On a Dollar a Day.”
Enjoy the review!
PS. We won’t be posting any video footage from our party. But good things are coming, so stay tuned!
We just wanted to share the cover art for the book with you!
Enjoy…and please pre-order with vim and vigor.
