The event creator says
Wild mushroom harvesting is the largest all-cash business in North America (that's legal). Award-winning author Langdon Cook embeds himself in the shadowy subculture, reporting from both rural fringes and big city eateries. Meet the pickers, buyers, and chefs in a patch-to-plate slideshow that reveals this frontier-style economy in action.

Langdon Cook is the author of "The Mushroom Hunters: On the Trail of an Underground America," winner of the 2014 Pacific Northwest Book Award, and Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st Century Forager, which the Seattle Times called “lyrical, practical and quixotic.” His writing appears in numerous publications, and he has been profiled in Bon Appetit, Outside, Salon.com, and the PBS TV series Food Forward. Cook lives in Seattle with his wife and two children.

The Meet-And-Greet starts at 6:30pm, so come early!

Directions: The church is located on Lavista Road west of North Druid Hills Road in the Toco Hills area. It is right after Chili's restaurant and right before the light at Houston Mill Road. The church has two driveways (both one-way). Facing the church, the entrance driveway is on the left (east). Drive in and go 3/4 of the way around the church (doing a big loop). The entrance is on the west side through the doors marked "Welcome." Follow the signs inside the church to the meeting room.
