Eric Schlosser, author of “Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal,” will explore the links between food, worker and immigrant justice issues during a Thursday night lecture at Occidental College. Schlosser followed up his best-selling 2001 book with the “Food, Inc.,” a 2008 documentary on the impact of corporate farming. “Eric Schlosser helped change the way we think about food – how it’s produced, how our tastes have been manipulated, and who gets impacted,” said Occidental professor Robert Gottlieb in a statement.
Schlosser will be presented with a honorary degree at the lecture on Thursday, Nov. 17. Click here for more details on the free event.
