The publisher of Free for All: Fixing School Food in America contacted me right after I posted about starting up the book club and offered to giveaway five copies to readers of the blog! How cool.
Like I posted last week, we’re going to spend most of January acquiring the book (through the library, bookstore, online, or the giveaway) and starting to read it. Moving into February, I’ll start posting discussion questions, to keep us going. Word of warning: this is not light reading. Janet Poppendieck must have researched and written for years to compile and organize the information for the book. The only time I find to read is at night, before bed. I’m going to put a highlighter on the bedside table so I can keep track of all of her quotes, statistics, and other information.
If you want to enter the giveaway and read along, please comment below by Friday January 7th! I’ll choose winners using random number generator.
