I'm excited to report that I'll travel to New Orleans later this summer to deliver a talk that highlights my forthcoming book, Biting the Hands that Feed Us. I'll be giving the book talk on Aug. 19, as part of the three-day Farm-to-Table Experience. From the session description:
This talk will highlight Baylen Linnekin’s new book, Biting the Hands that Feed Us: How Fewer, Smarter Laws Would Make Our Food System More Sustainable (Island Press; September 15, 2016). Drawing on his work as a food lawyer and scholar, the book and related talk will tell the human stories of farmers, food producers, sellers, and consumers who have been hurt by—or are working against—bad laws that promote unsustainable food practices or prohibit sustainable food practices.
I'll also be joining a plenary panel on Thursday, Aug. 18 to discuss the impact of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
