Book Talk with Joel Berg

Friday 5:00 pm, Free, in the Oregon room of the Doubletree Hotel

Join us for an evening of enlightening discussion about a serious national problem. In the new book All You Can Eat: How Hungry is America? (Seven Stories Press), former Clinton Administration official and nationally-known anti-poverty advocate Joel Berg provides President Obama with a blueprint to achieve his campaign pledge to end child hunger in the U.S. by 2015, as a down payment on ending all domestic hunger. Berg also suggests how the nation could immediately offer much-needed relief to the millions of Americans who have been forced to join the lines at soup kitchens and food pantries across the country.  You can also check out Joel’s website, which has an online discussion about hunger that Joel did with the New York Times, op-eds and other information on hunger, as well as information on Joel and All You Can Eat at  No registration or RSVP necessary.
