Barry Estabrook: "Tomatoland: How Modern Industrial Agriculture Destroyed Our Most Alluring Fruit"

When: Tue., Aug. 16, 12 p.m. 2011

In 2010, Barry Estabrook -- then-contributing editor for the late Gourmet magazine -- won a prestigious James Beard Award for his Gourmet piece on labor abuses in the tomato fields of Florida. Estabrook has expanded that article into Tomatoland, a deep, disturbing look into the $10 billion industry. Don't bother asking if he's sure it's a fruit on Tuesday, Aug. 16, at Books Inc. (1760 Fourth St., Berkeley). A portion of sales will benefit the EcologyCenter. Noon, free. 510-525-7777 or BooksInc.net
