City Arts & Lectures to host evening with Michael Pollan

Love City Arts & Lectures? Worship Michael Pollan? Then next Monday, pony up $500 to share the stage with New York Times bestselling author Michael Pollan of The Omnivore’s Dilemma and In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto.

Proceeds from the benefit will fund the restoration of the historical Nourse Auditorium, which will be the new home of City Arts & Lectures. 

What: An Evening with Michael Pollan

When: June 11, 2012 at 6:30 p.m.

Where: The Nourse Auditorium, 275 Hayes St.

City Arts & Lectures will host the benefit and guests will have an opportunity to sit on stage and chat with Pollan and fellow food writer Patricia Unterman. Afterward, enjoy a private three-course dinner with Pollan and members of City Arts & Lectures at the Hayes Street Grill. Proceeds from the event will help to fund the restoration of the Nourse Auditorium, which will be the new home to City Arts & Lectures.
