This Month's Read: EATING TO EXTINCTION, by Dan Saladino
“Of the roughly six thousand different plants once consumed by human beings, only nine remain major staples today.” This book describes what has been lost and how, and why this is a concern for our long-term survival. The author explains why we need to reintroduce more foods (and flavors) from a variety of sources into our diets for the health of humans and the planet as a whole.Location:AWPL Board RoomAge Group:Adult

French Exit (2020): Based on Patrick DeWitt's 2018 novel, it stars Michelle Pfeiffer and Lucas Hedges; "My plan was to die before the money ran out," says 60-year-old penniless Manhattan socialite Frances Price, but things didn't go as planned. Her husband Franklin has been dead for 12 years, and with his vast inheritance gone, she cashes in the last of her possessions and resolves to live out her twilight days anonymously in a borrowed apartment in Paris, accompanied by her directionless son Malcolm and a cat named Small Frank--who may or may not embody the spirit of Frances' dead husband. Rated R: 1 hour and 53 minutes.Location:AWPL Community RoomAge Group:Adult
