Jon Steinman Book Tour: Grocery Story: The promise of food co-ops in the age of grocery giants

Presented by Jon Steinman and New Society Publishers

Jon Steinman will be making a stop at our Co-op as part of the book tour for Grocery Story: The promise of food co-ops in the age of grocery giants, published by New Society Publishers. Through penetrating analysis and inspiring stories and examples of American and Canadian food co-ops, Grocery Story makes a compelling case for the transformation of the grocery store aisles as the emerging frontier in the local and good food movements.
