The Spirituality of Eating: Reading & Booksigning

12 Oct 2012

On Friday, October 12, 7 pm at Malaprop's Bookstore & Cafe, Norman Wirzba, author of Food and Faith: A Theology of Eating, will
describe how eating, ranging from production to consumption, is a moral and spiritual act. He will suggest ways that we as eaters can do a better job promoting a communion of life. Fred Bahnson, co-author with Wirzba and Bill McKibben of Making Peace with the Land: God's Call to Reconcile with Creation, will lead a Q&A, followed by a booksigning. This event is sponsored by the Food & Faith Initiative at Wake Forest University School of Divinity.

The event is free and open to the public.
