The American Way of Eating - Common Read @ UNI


Join Cornerstone students in reading this year's common read book, The American Way of Eating: Undercover at Walmart, Applebee's, Farm Fields, and the Dinner Table, by Tracie McMillan.

In 2009 Tracie McMillan embarked on a groundbreaking undercover journey to see what it takes to eat well in America. For nearly a year she worked, ate, and lived alongside the working poor to examine how Americans eat when price matters.

  • The book's author, Tracie McMillan, is scheduled to visit UNI on Monday, October 14, 2013 at 7pm in Lang Hall Auditorium. 
  • A Strayer-Wood Theatre production, American Way of Eating, based on the book of the same title by Tracie McMillan is scheduled for October 10-12, 16-19 at 7:30 pm and October 13 & 20 at 2:00 pm. The show is free to all UNI students. Non Cornerstone staff and faculty will need to purchase tickets at the Box Office or through UNItix. 
  • Rod Library has developed an American Way of Eating LibGuide (online subject guide) to help Cornerstone students find related resources.
