An evening with Michael Pollan, in conversation with Mina Kim

Michael Pollan flyer advertising event with Mina Kim. Writer Michael Pollan talks with KQED’s Mina Kim about his writing and revelations about our individual and collective well-being, from changing what’s on our tables to what’s on our minds. 

Michael Pollan is the former John S. and James L. Knight Professor of Journalism at Berkeley Journalism and co-founder of the UC Berkeley Center for the Science of Psychedelics. He is the author of nine books, including The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals and The Botany of Desire: A Plant’s-Eye View of the World, and his latest, This is Your Mind on Plants. 

Mina Kim hosts KQED’s Forum, a live daily talk show on issues that matter to California and the nation, to create an informed, healthier and stronger community.

The event celebrates Michael Pollan’s body of work and the establishment of a new Michael Pollan Narrative Journalism Fund at Berkeley Journalism. 

Tickets are $40 and go on sale on April 2.
