Thursday, April 28, 2016 | Monkey Wrench Books (MWB) is hosting a discussion with Food for Black Thought on Geographer Eliot Tretter’s new book Shadows of a Sunbelt City: Racism, the Environment, and the Knowledge Economy in Austin.
This book is a counter narrative to a popular perception of Austin as a progressive city. Rich Heyman (University of Texas-Austin, Geography) will lead the discussion. The book will be available for sale and Tretter will do book signings.
We’re excited to share that all book sale proceeds will go to MWB and Food for Black Thought. MWB is Austin’s only collectively run and owned bookstore.
Funds raised from this upcoming event will help FFBT take the Exploring Food and Urban Change curriculum we’ve been piloting at the University of Texas-Austin to the broader community. Learn more about the curriculum and vision here. We appreciate your on-going support.
