Seattle: join us and Paul Greenberg this Thursday

BBRSDAPICWe’re taking Bristol Bay sockeye on the road this summer with Paul Greenberg and the Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association during our Save and Savor Bristol Bay dinner series.

Seattle is our next stop! Please join us at Town Hall this Thursday for an evening with Paul Greenberg.

When: Thursday, July 10
Doors open: 6:30 p.m.
Where: Town Hall | 1119 Eighth Avenue, Seattle, WA 98101
How much: Tickets are $5. Town Hall member benefits: Priority seating, discounted onsite book sales.

Why attend, you ask? Here are a few not-so-sustainable facts to chew on about the state of our seafood industry:

  • The United States controls more ocean than any other country, yet ninety-one percent of seafood eaten in America is imported.
  • American fishermen catch more fish than Americans could ever possibly eat, but we continue to export it — more and more often to Asia.

New York Times bestselling author Paul Greenberg’s latest book American Catch tracks the story of our modern consumption, environmental barriers to its production, and how to relocalize our eating habits.

On Thursday, you’ll hear from Paul Greenberg as he shares more about his travels across the country searching for the origins of marine dishes — and answers to why we’re shipping it all overseas. Plus, you’ll have a chance to buy his latest book and have it signed on the spot.

We hope to see you on Thursday! Please contact us with any questions.

This Seattle event is presented by Town Hall in partnership with Chefs Collaborative and Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association, as part of the Civics series and Town Green sub series, presented with The Peach Foundation, Wyncote Foundation NW, and Elliott Bay Book Company. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True-Brown Foundation. Series media sponsorship provided by The Stranger and KUOW.
