Food Recommended Reading and DVD List
For this course, you will need to do some reading about food, health and the economy. You can find some recommendations in the library's On Our Minds 2010-2011 annual reading program, which featured two books by Michael Pollan relating to this topic: Food Rules: An Eater's Guide and In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto. The program included a recommended reading list.
The books on the list are available in the URSUS and MaineCat libraries so any book not available in the Mantor Library's collection could be requested from another library and sent here for you. You just need a library barcode on your UMF Student ID card to make a request!
If you have questions about finding and requesting books, ask your assigned librarian for more information.
