We are due to finish up our first book club selection, Folks, This Ain’t Normal by Joel Salatin, and after a vote, we have chosen to read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver next. I read this book a few years ago, shortly after The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan. AVM had come highly recommended from more than one good friend, so I knew I would at least like it. But when I discovered the author was writing about her family’s farmstead in rural Virginia, I knew I would love it. And love it I did.
