Your Money or Your Life: Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Achieving Financial Independenceby Joseph R. Dominguez and Vicki Robin
Friday, January 10, 2014 07:30 PM
Powell's City of Books on Burnside, Portland, OR
Taking the locavore movement to heart, bestselling author (Your Money or Your Life) Vicki Robin pledged for one month to eat only food sourced within a 10-mile radius of her home on Whidbey Island in Puget Sound, Washington. Her sustainable diet not only brings to light society's unhealthy dependency on mass-produced, prepackaged foods but also helps her reconnect with her body and her environment. Blessing the Hands That Feed Us (Viking) is part personal narrative and part global manifesto. By challenging herself to eat and buy local, Robin exposes the cause and effect of the food business, from the processed goods laden with sugar, fat, and preservatives to the trucks burning through fuel to bring them to a shelf near you. This event is sponsored by Edible Portland.
