Richard Manning’s will be presenting, “Sustainability and Other Crimes Against Nature,” at Spokane Community College on Wednesday, February 27th at 7:00 p.m. (2nd floor, Library – LRC building 16) Manning, an environmental author and investigative journalist from Lolo, Montana, is the author of seven books — his most recent one called Against The Grain: How Agriculture Has Hijacked Civilization (published in 2004). Not one to shy away from provocative titles, he also wrote an article called “The oil we eat: Following the food chain back to Iraq,” published by Harper’s Magazine in February 2004 (http://www.harpers.org/archive/2004/02/0079915).

Manning’s event is sponsored by the Hagan Foundation Center for the Humanities and organized by the Sustainability Planning Committee. For event details, go to: http://www.scc.spokane.edu/?hfchevents
