Attn Portland: Check out Lisa Weasel at Powell’s Tonight

Lisa Weasel, author of Food FrayHello Portlanders!

We have the perfect author for you… Lisa H. Weasel, Ph.D., author of Food Fray: Inside the Controversy Over Genetically Modified Food.

Wednesday, January 7, 2009
7:30-9:30 pm

Powell’s City of Books (Burnside)
1005 West Burnside
Portland, OR 97209

KINK-FM will be there too, with morning show host Sheila Hamilton moderating the Q&A session and recording for an upcoming webisode. Check it out.

Or as Wilamette Week puts it… “Living in a town where words like ‘locavore’ and ‘bike gardener’ are commonplace, consider it your civic duty to listen when PSU professor Lisa Weasel talks up her newly released book, Food Fray: Inside the Controversy over Genetically Modified Food. Why should you care what she has to say about the disturbing prevalence of GM corn and soybeans or Swiss magic rice that could cure vitamin A deficiencies the world over? Because she’s a freakin’ molecular biologist who got a grant from the National Science Foundation to study this stuff. And she’s a member of the guv’s task force on developing public policy for Oregon biopharmaceutical crops.”
