Summer Reading, pt. 4
Contributor Danielle Romo
Pollan is the author of several food books, The Omnivores Dilemma and In Defense of Food most famously. His recent read is slim at just 140 pages, and it’s organized for those of us who need a few punchy points without all the scientific background. With a lot of help, Pollan put together 60 rules to transform our eating of “edible food-like substances” to the whole, unprocessed and underrated food of our forefathers.
“Detour” author Brigitte Kiepert
The portrayal of women in the media is a heated topic that is constantly in discussion with many differing opinions. Jean Kilbourne tackles the advertising industry head-on and explains just how dangerous the media can be toward the female gender. A must read for anyone interested in woman’s issues and/or advertising.
“Threads” contributor Annie Vihtelic
As an adult this is a good book to read lazily, maybe a couple poems a day or at night before bed. It’s a great book to read as a kid with fantastic illustrations and imagery, but as an adult I see it in a totally different way.
To Kill a Mockingbird
I try to read this book once a year and it seems I always end up doing so in the summer. If you’ve already read it, read it again. If you never have, make sure you do before you die.
