Michael Pollan has been called many things, including “liberal foodie intellectual.” by the New York Times. True, but add to that “journalist, author, activist, university professor.” Pollan has helped raise the nation’s food-culture awareness through his lectures, essays and best-selling books, which include “The Omnivore's Dilemma,” “In Defense of Food,” “Food Rules” and “Cooked.”

Foodies can catch Pollan’s appearance at 10:30 a.m. April 24 in the Recital Hall on the campus of Cosumnes River College, 8401 Center Parkway, Sacramento. The free event is part of the college’s Earth Day Sustainable Food Festival, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on campus.
