The Slow Food Russian River Book Group will discuss from One Size Fits None: A Farm Girl’s Search for the Promise of Regenerative Agriculture (2019) by Stephanie Anderson.
The Book Group usually meets the first Thursday of the month, 7 – 9 pm, at a location chosen by the rotating moderators, be it their home, a bar or restaurant, a park or meadow, or a public library or square. It’s a convivial dinner, unless we meet at a bar or restaurant. Please bring a side dish or dessert for four and a beverage.
Host Jonah Raskin writes: “For a couple of months, I was casting about for a book for the group for March. A dear friend who keeps bees recommended Gabrielle Hamilton’s “Blood, Bones & Butter,” and while I read it and liked it I didn’t know how to get a handle on it. Then in the mail I received “One Size Fits None” and loved it from page one because the author is from South Dakota and is the daughter of a farmer. I love stories about farming families. I also love Anderson’s book because she understands that in our day and age sustainable won’t do it. As she recognizes, we have to have “regenerative agriculture.” Those two words alone should get us going. I can make copies of the Introduction, which is nine pages, and send them out if I have your street address. I believe that the nine pages will spark discussion.”
