Introducing January’s Book Club Selection

animal-vegetable-miracleAnimal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life by Barbara Kingolver, Steven L. Hopp, and Camille Kingsolver

What’s It About?

(Description from Goodreads)

Author Barbara Kingsolver and her family abandoned the industrial-food pipeline to live a rural life—vowing that, for one year, they’d only buy food raised in their own neighborhood, grow it themselves, or learn to live without it. Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is an enthralling narrative that will open your eyes in a hundred new ways to an old truth: You are what you eat.

Why Was This Title Selected

I wanted a non-history, non-biography/memoir nonfiction selection, and I’d heard good things about this, especially as a choice to start the year. Plus it’d been on my TBR list for ages.

Anything Else to Know About It?

The discussion is just getting underway in the Facebook group, and you’re welcome to come and join us.

  1. Sounds like a great choice for the new year. I often wondered how people get started and more importantly stay on a diet (for lack of a better word) like that. Looking forward to reading more about it.
