Author Talk - Grocery Story: The Promise of Food Co-ops @ Maynard Public Library | Maynard | MA | United States

It’s our first Co-op author talk, and it’s a big one!!!

On Wednesday, May 8, at 6:30pm, the Assabet Village Co-op Market presents Jon Steinman, author of Grocery Story: The Promise of Food Co-ops in the Age of Supermarket Giants.

Hear Steinman read from his landmark book exploring food co-ops (community-owned grocery stores) as an alternative to corporate supermarket giants. Through penetrating analysis and inspiring examples of thriving American and Canadian food co-ops, Grocery Story makes a compelling case for the transformation of the grocery store aisles as the emerging frontier in the local and good food movements. Hear why co-ops are spurring the creation of local food economies and stronger communities, while changing the global food system for the better.

Mr. Steinman will also be signing copies of his book, and you’ll hear about the Assabet Village Co-op Market, a locally sourced, community-owned grocery store opening up right here in Maynard. This event is FREE and all are welcome. We’ll see you on May 8!
