This month we'll be reading Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser.

From the book description:
In 2001, Fast Food Nation was published to critical acclaim and became an international bestseller. Eric Schlosser’s exposé revealed how the fast food industry has altered the landscape of America, widened the gap between rich and poor, fueled an epidemic of obesity, and transformed food production throughout the world. The book changed the way millions of people think about what they eat and helped to launch today’s food movement.

For those attending, we'd like to have a discussion about books we'd like to see going forward as part of the meeting to get ahead of the schedule somewhat, and also just to have the group's input. So please come ready with specific suggestions if you have any. Thanks in advance, and hope to see you there!
