LECTURE—Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food

Four Fish book coverFeb. 24, 7PM, Fulton Chapel—New York Times best selling author Paul Greenberg will discuss how the numbers of fish in the wild are at record low levels as global demand has risen. By looking at the four types of fish that dominate the seafood counter at supermarkets around the country—salmon, tuna, bass, and cod—Greenberg explores how we can make the catching, farming, and eating of fish a sustainable practice.

A regular contributor to The New York Times, he has also written for National Geographic Magazine, GQ, The Times (of London), and Vogue. His next book, American Catch, about how we lost and how we might regain American local seafood, will be published by The Penguin Press in June 2014.

The lecture is hosted by the Center for Writing and Rhetoric and the Southern Foodways Alliance.
