PEPPERELL — The Lawrence Library’s Make It Real series continues with: Politics of Food.

If you have ever wondered how our food system has changed and what effect that change has had on our personal health, our healthcare system and the state of economics in this country, this event is for you. We will discuss some of the important issues in current food politics including: regulatory policies and the appropriate reach of the state, genetically modified food, organic and sustainable agriculture, the effects of economic globalization on the food supply chain, water politics, bees, and the future of the world food system.

This program will be held at the Lawrence Library, on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 at 7 p.m., and is presented by Christopher Wilkinson, M.A., from the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Mr. Wilkinson is the University’s Community & Government Relations Coordinator, as well as Adjunct Professor, Political Science Department, and Online & Continuing Education. Additionally, he serves on the Board of Directors, Greater Lowell Chamber of Commerce.

No registration is necessary. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Lawrence Library.
