One of my oldest friends, Sasha Abramsky, has turned his incredible journalistic eye away from the prison-industrial-complex (on which he has written many fine books), to looking at the food system. The fruits of his labours will soon be available, and Breadline USA is well worth the read. It’s a harrowing and keenly observed expose of America’s ongoing hunger. And, if you’re in Northern California, you can meet Sasha in person at his book launch in Sacramento on June 16th. Details in the attachment. And if you can’t make it, here’s a podcast in which Sasha tells all.
