Dear  ,
It's April -- Poetry Month, month of Earth Day and April showers.  And this year,
the end of a long, snowy winter and the perfect time to think about new plants, 
gardens, and food!
Back in February Lester Brown confessed that he had come to a new realization that
food shortages might be a more important aftereffect of climate change than he had
anticipated.  So this month Cambridge Forum is taking a long look at food and its
importance in human civilization with Andrew Rimas, the co-author of Empires of 
Food.
We're also getting ready to host Ralph Nader on May 5.  This is a NEW program, just
added to the spring schedule, and it will require tickets, so reserve yours now 
by calling the Forum office at 617-495-2727.

Empires of Food

Author Andrew Rimas discusses his book Empires of Food:  Feast, Famine and the Rise
and Fall of Civilizations. What does this sweeping look [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=7wih55cab&et=1104796841565&s=217&e=001bsO2M-u0I8t8A5xlhRVtAaTzqzfRqSd-ezNUd51DX_BBlwm-mOi9vUELwkfVbVgTibjtp9wuoDbYQHG-cP8KqHFZ00pqpi3RRtWxVhl9ogR2r2IUzhPCxqio01fypSZ4lO4l0v14BiFbOkAW7aleKQ==].

Can the Super Rich Save Us?
Thursday, May 5, 2011
7:00 pm
Political activist and consumer advocate Ralph Nader discusses the revised edition
of his latest book Only the Super Rich Can Save Us!  Described as as work of imagination,
but not fiction, Nader's book challenges our vision of the American Dream. How does
his provocative message resonate with American voters as the Great Recession drags
on?  How does his call to the "super rich" square with the Supreme Court's Citizens
United decision on political campaign contributions?
Tickets Required:  $5 (general admission); FREE to Cambridge Forum members.  Call
