Food Book Club - The Seasons on Henry's Farm

  • Beermiscuous 2812 North Lincoln Avenue Chicago, IL, 60657 United States (map)

Join us for November's food book club as we read and discuss The Seasons on Henry's Farm with special guest - author, Terra Brockman. This event is free to attend!

Henry's Farm, run by Henry Brockman, is in central Illinois - considered some of the richest farming land in the world. There, he and his family five generations of farmers, including sister Terra, the author - have bucked the traditional agribusiness conventional wisdom by farming in a way that's sensible, sustainable, and focused on producing healthy, nutritious food in ways that doesn't despoil the land. Terra tells the story of her family and their life on the farm in the form of a year-long memoir - with recipes - that takes readers through each season of life on the farm. The story beings with garlic planting in November - making it an appropriate read for this time of year.

Please feel free to bring a small dish or snack (from or inspired by the book) so we can have a small community meal to share together. Drinks will be available for purchase from Beermiscuous. We will be meeting downstairs in their Cellar Room.
