Book of the Month, May/June 2018 - The Last Hunger Season

May/June 2018 – The Last Hunger Season

This spring, we’re partnering with AgriCorps for our eighth selected book, The Last Hunger Season by Roger Thurow. We’ve read a lot about agriculture in the United States, but we’ll be branching out to African to learn more about the culture of farming and some of the challenges associated with it.

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: Prologue and Chapter 1 (Twitter chat on 5/16)
  • Week 2: Chapter 2 (Twitter chat on 5/23)
  • Week 3: Chapter 3 (Twitter chat on 5/30)
  • Week 4: Chapter 4 (Twitter chat on 6/6)
  • Week 5: Chapter 5 (Twitter chat on 6/13)
  • Week 6: Chapter 6 (Twitter chat on 6/20)
  • Week 7: Chapter 7 and Epilogue (Twitter chat on 6/27)

Join the chat (#AgBookClub) on Wednesdays at 8:00pm Central on Twitter. Learn how to participate in a Twitter chat here. While we hope you can participate in our discussion every week, we know that everyone has busy schedules. If, for some reason, you have to miss a week of #AgBookClub, we’ll make sure to post a recap of our discussion on our blog. We always include general questions that can be answered by anyone, so please don’t hesitate to jump in the Twitter chat if you didn’t have a chance to read the section we’re discussing. We welcome any and all to join the discussion!

Happy reading!
