Ashland – The Ashland Documentary Film & Discussion Series will present a talk on film, “How Food Fueled Human Origins,” Thursday, Sept. 11, from 7-9 p.m., in the Community Room at the Ashland Library, 66 Front St. Admission is free, and viewers are invited to stay for discussion.

 

In this short public lecture before in audience at Univ. of Cal. San Diego, Prof. Margaret Schoeninger outlines what anthropology has discovered about the role of food in the origins of Homo sapiens. She also discusses the development of agriculture and modern industrial food production.

The film is presented by the Friends of the Ashland Library and co-sponsored by the Ashland Farmers’ Market.
