Anna Lappe, Small Planet Institute

If you are like me…50-something or even more chronologically gifted, you remember Frances Moore-Lappe’s book Diet for a Small Planet.  Nothing short of revolutionary — for so many people it was life changing, many people converting to vegetarianism virtually overnight.  When I heard that Frances’ daughter Anna was coming to town to be the keynote speaker at the Food Summit, sponsored by the Food Policy Council, I knew this was my opportunity to have a conversation with her.  Anna is the author of many books and travels throughout the world speaking about food security and sovereignty.   Through the great work of May Patino at the California Center for Rural Policy, located at Humboldt State University, it happened!

But you know how it is — so many questions and only 10 minutes for an interview — so of course I asked what it was like at the dinner table growing up with Frances Moore-Lappe.  Listen here for the interview and check out the  Small Planet Institute
