Library series: Eating, Reading and Living Well

Another free, food-focused event series. Another chance to screen Food Inc.! If you have already seen Food Inc., Fresh and other similar food documentaries, the included author events could give a deeper dive. I will add the Midway-centric events to the HMEG calendar, but all of these dates are interesting to me.

If you want to find fellow HMEGers to attend with, the GoogleGroup is a good place to inquire with neighbors. The following information is from The Friends of the St. Paul Public Library.
