The Big Read: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver

This year the libraries in the Western Suburbs of Chicago (including my home library) are reading Kingsolver's nonfiction work about her family's experiment of eating only local, in-season foods for 365 days.

Information about the book and a full schedule of Big Read events is available here.

I am currently listening to Animal, Vegetable, Miracle and will weigh in with my opinion in a few weeks. But for the record, regardless of how anyone feels about the book itself, the idea of getting a community to read one book at the same time, to have that common experience, is worth it.
