Emily E. LB. Twarog will read and discuss her recent book Politics of the Pantry, about the influential women activists who defined the consumer advocacy movement. “Without grassroots organizing by women throughout the 20th century against rotting ingredients, high food prices, and indecipherable freshness codes, buying food in America would look very different than it does.”—The Atlantic

Twarog is assistant professor of labor studies and history at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She directs the Regina V. Polk Women’s Labor Leadership Conference at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
