Hurry! We’re only accepting comments received from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (CDT) today (Thursday, May 13).

Stay tuned to The University of Texas at Austin page on Facebook for details on next week’s ticket giveaway to “Mike Daisey: The Last Cargo Cult.”

About the Dec. 10 show: For the last 20 years bestselling author, journalist and food activist Michael Pollan has written about the places the human and natural worlds intersect, challenging the way Americans think about eating. Central Texans are increasingly moving toward healthful, locally produced and sustainable food options, and Pollan has been at the front of the movement. In books such as “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” and “In Defense of Food,” Pollan demonstrates how difficult it is to navigate today’s complex world of food production. Read more about “An Evening with Michael Pollan” on the Texas Performing Arts Web site.
