Iowa City author Susan Futrell will talk about her new book from U of I Press, Good Apples: Behind Every Bite.  

"Join Susan Futrell's journey from New England to Iowa to Washington to meet the growers working to produce perfect apples with exactly the crunch and flavor people want. This is a story of the uncertainties of a changing climate, a dance of managing pests and weather and second-guessing a global, unforgiving apple market to make a living and hold onto the land. Susan Futrell issues a gentle call to action to embrace the dazzling complexity of farming with all of our compassion and intelligence." —Glenda Yoder, Farm Aid
