Subject – Food Week
Books – The Grapes of Wrath, Fried Green Tomatoes & Fast Food Nation
A story about the Joad farming family who are displaced from their Oklahoma tenant farm during the Great Depression. Trapped in the dustbowl, they head for California in hopes of a better life. A Story about Evelyn Couch meeting Cleo Threadgoode who tells the story of the Whistle Stop Cafe in Birmingham, AL. in the 1930s. What was once an article on the depressing state of the American diet in Rolling Stone Magazine in 1999, Schlosser looks beyond just the dietary side effects of American fast food in an unveiling of how the fast food nation mindset contributes to the degrading quality of American life.
