Eric Schlosser, the Fast Food Nation guy, is getting lots o' press for his new book for preteens and teenagers, Chew on This: Everything You Don't Want to Know About Fast Food. The Los Angeles Times caught up with Schlosser in Berkeley last week, and yesterday both the New York Times and the Washington Post reviewed the book, which was co-written with Charles Wilson. NY Times: "Read this, and you have had your last Happy Meal." WaPo: "Along with the all-McDonald's-diet movie, 'Supersize Me,' this should be required fare before the next lunch bell rings."
If you're in Portland, Oregon, you can catch Schlosser at the First Congregational Church tonight, at 7. It's a free event; seating on a first-come, first-served basis. See the Powell's Chew on This link above, for more details.
