Virginia Sole-Smith EventJoin us on Saturday, March 16th at 7:00 p.m. as Virginia Sole-Smith discusses her book The Eating Instinct: Food Culture, Body Image and Guilt in America.

The Eating Instinct visits kitchen tables around America to tell Sole-Smith’s own story, as well as the stories of women recovering from weight loss surgery, of people who eat only nine foods, of families with unlimited grocery budgets and those on food stamps. Every struggle is unique. But Sole-Smith shows how they’re also all products of our modern food culture. And they’re all asking the same questions: How did I learn to eat this way? Why is it so hard to feel good about food? And how can I make it better?

Virginia Sole-Smith is a freelance writer whose work has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Harper's, Slate, and Elle. She is also a contributing editor with Parents Magazine. She lives with her husband and two daughters in the Hudson Valley.

--This event was originally scheduled in November 2018, and again in January 2019. We're hoping third time's the charm, weather-wise!
