There’s a big reason New York Times bestselling author Michael Pollan is a bestselling author—he just writes common sense. Too much of what we read about how to eat is too busy pushing a faddish diet or pure gobbledygook; Pollan, instead, writes things like “Be the kind of person who takes supplements—then skip the supplements.” He will be bringing his clear-eyed wisdom to town for an event sponsored by the Orfalea Foundations’ s’Cool Food and UCSB Arts & Lectures on Thursday, February 10, at 8 p.m. at the Granada Theatre for a conversation with NPR’s Renée Montagne.
