From the Library: Quick links and update

Thanks, Claudia and Dennis, for requesting further info about the Library Master Plan focus groups.  Please don't hesitate to call the library's director, Michelle Cervantes, (512.218.7010) if you have further questions.

Michelle's email:  mcervantes@roundrocktexas.gov

You can view Michelle's "commercial" for the master plan focus groups here.

Next up in Community Cinema's Independent Lens documentary series:  As Goes Janesville, showing at the library on Thursday, October 25 at 7:00 P.M.  More info here.

And finally:  I just spotted a timely addition to Claudia's excellent discussion and overview of books on food production/provision/consumption:  Bet the Farm: How Food Stopped Being Food by Frederick Kaufman.  It's newly published.  According to the Publishers Weekly review, it's "neither dry argumentative soup nor antiglobalization polemic".  Kaufman "discusses Big Food through specific products and goes far behind the curtain of corporate processes and practices".  The book is billed as "a nice addition to Michael Pollan".
