Author Michael Pollan talks about his new book Food Rules, fast food, cooking, and the next generation of eaters.
Also on the program, we’ll visit the The Musical Arts Youth Orchestra, an inter-school orchestra where kids of all ages come together to play a wide range of musical styles. We’ll speak with music educator Brent Talbot to learn more about how participating in a music group affects the social and mental development of school-age children.
And how does a onetime contributor to Playboy and Esquire end up writing for children? Artworks’ Adam Schwartz will speak with writer and humorist Dan Greenburg about what he gets out of being a children’s author.
