Mark Kurlansky was great!

Marcia and Kelly went to go see Mark Kurlansky at the Colonial. He was a pretty good speaker & seemed to hint that he knew a whole heck of a lot more about the world than he was letting on!

Some other books of his I'd like to look into (having already read Salt: A World History and half of Cod: A Biography of the Fish that Changed the World) are The Food of a Younger Land, The Basque History of the World and especially Nonviolence: 25 Lessons from the History of a Dangerous Idea. He's one of the great big-picture thinkers.
