Barry Estabrook

Barry Estabrook is, if not the conscience of the food industry, at least the investigative chronicler of the industry (and probably the conscience, too). His pieces examining the environmental, humanitarian, and humaneitarian impacts of food production have appeared in national publications including Esquire, The Atlantic, Saveur and the New York Times. His 2009 Gourmet article "The Price of Tomatoes" later became his bestelling book, Tomatoland. In 2015 Barry has stepped back into books again with his investigation of the pork industry: Pig Tales.  

Pig Tales quickly garnered a lot of media attention. Here's a list of some of the places covering pork and Barry Estabrook's insight into the industry behind this meat:

Barry Estabrook appears at the store on Tuesday, May 19th (2015) at 7:00 pm to talk about Pig Tales. This event is free and open to the public, with refreshments that will undoubtedly be vegetarian and not include tomatoes.
