Food for Thought

The Carnegie Museum of Montgomery County, Sustainable Indiana and the League of Women Voters of Montgomery County invite you to meet the authors of Food for Thought: An Indiana Harvest.
Food for Thought: An Indiana Harvest, commissioned by Indiana Humanities. Featuring first-person narratives and rich photography, the coffee table book captures and shares stories from Hoosiers about the food renaissance taking place across the state. To celebrate the release Food for Thought: An Indiana Harvest, a new book commissioned by Indiana Humanities, the Carnegie Museum is hosting a book signing and discussion with author David Hoppe and photographer Kristin Hess.

Food for Thought: An Indiana Harvest features a broad spectrum of Hoosiers statewide, and is a legacy of the two-year award-winning program called Food for Thought, in which Indiana Humanities encouraged Hoosiers to think, read and talk about food and its role in our lives. The book went on sale Aug. 1 and this stop is part of a two-month, statewide tour by Hoppe, Hess and the interviewees. The tour is funded in part by Farm Credit Mid-America.

The event will be at the Carnegie Museum on Thursday, September 20th from 5 pm to 8 pm with the panel presentation beginning at 5:30. Book signing and discussion will follow. Visitors are encouraged to view the exhibit Agriculture: the Cultivation of Montgomery County currently on display at the Carnegie Museum as well.

Food for Thought: An Indiana Harvest was published by IBJ Publishing and printed by an Indiana company. The $24.95 book is available in the Carnegie Museum gift shop. The Carnegie Museum is open Wednesday through Saturday 10 am to 5 pm. Admission is free and the building is handicap accessible.
