devouredThe March book selection for the Global Book Series is Devoured: From Chicken Wings to Kale Smoothies–How What We Eat Defines Who We Are  by Sophie Egan.  Egan is a food writer and program director of the Culinary Institute of America. 

Sophie Egan takes readers on an eye-opening journey through the American food psyche, examining the connections between the values that define our national character—work, freedom, and progress—and our eating habits, the good and the bad.

“Entertaining… Humorous… An informative look at what Americans eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and all those snack times in between and how our eating habits are changing who we are.” (Kirkus Reviews)
