Writers LIVE: Renee Catacalos, The Chesapeake Table: Your Guide to Eating Local

Renee Brooks Catacalos will be in conversation with Rev. Heber Brown III, founder of Black Church Food Security Network.

In The Chesapeake Table, Catacalos examines the powerful effect of eating local in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC. Hooked on the local food movement from its early days, Catacalos opens the book by revisiting a personal challenge to only buy, prepare, and eat food grown within a 150-mile radius of her home near Washington, DC.

Renee Brooks Catacalos is the former publisher of Edible Chesapeake magazine and former deputy director for Future Harvest - Chesapeake Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture. She is now Member and Strategic Partnerships Manager for the national philanthropy serving organization Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Funders. She also serves as a member of the Steering Team for the Chesapeake Foodshed Network, a regional food systems initiative. www.reneeeatslocal.com

The Ivy Bookshop will have books for sale at a book signing following the program.

Writers LIVE programs are supported in part by a bequest from The Miss Howard Hubbard Adult Programming Fund.
