On today's THE FOOD SEEN, with a life long interest in food and it's ability to inspire, Elizabeth Thacker Jones presents the FOOD BOOK FAIR, the first ever event bringing together food publications from around the world alongside a dynamic set of events celebrating food writing, reading, and activism, with such authors as Harold McGee (On Food and Cooking), Marion Nestle (Why Calories Count and Food Politics), Colman Andrews (Author and Editorial Director, The Daily Meal). Held on FRI MAY 4 - SUN MAY 6, 2012, at the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg (Brooklyn, NY), there will be a multitude of food-related panel discussions, and books abound! This program has been brought to you by Whole Foods.

"There is a need to learn where our food comes from, and perhaps also there's also a historical perspective and a 'sense of place' to the way we consume." --Elizabeth Thacker Jones on THE FOOD SEEN
