Book of the Month, Oct. 2017 - $2.00 A Day

October 2017 – $2.00 A Day

In our second selected book for AgBookClub, we’ll be discussing $2.00 A Day. This is a book that explores poverty in the United States and how that affects food availability for those individuals. While not something we always want to talk about, it’s important to be aware of because food insecurity is still very real in the United States.

Here’s what you need to do this month:

Get the book. Buy it, borrow it, read over your neighbor’s shoulder — we don’t care. But don’t steal the book.

Read the book.

  • Week 1 (“due” 10/4): Introduction & Chapter 1 [pages xi – 34]
  • Week 2 (“due” 10/11): Chapter 2 & 3 [p. 35 – 92]
  • Week 3 (“due” 10/18): Chapter 4 [p. 93 – 128]
  • Week 4 (“due” 10/25): Chapter 5 & Conclusion [p. 129 – 174]
