When: Mon., Oct. 24 2011
One of the nation's top proponents of conscientious eating, author Michael Pollen stops at Playhouse Square today. The prolific journalist and writer may be best known for his 2006 book The Omnivore's Dilemma, which landed him on The New York Times Best Sellers List and snagged him a prestigious James Beard Award. But he's also crafted three other bestsellers and has blossomed into an influential lecturer on topics of food, agriculture, health, gardening, and the environment. Witty, concise, and insightful, Pollan brings his earthy self to the Ohio Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased online or by phone. — Cicora 1511 Euclid Ave., 216-664-6051, playhousesquare.org/ writerscenterstage.
