Join UC Davis Alumni, students and friends for a evening with UC Davis alumni, Daniel Stone, to discuss his new book, The Food Explorer, his work at National Geographic, and how his time at UC Davis shaped his path.
Refreshments, appetizers, and a copy of the book are included with ticket purchase. The evening will include a short book talk with a time for questions, moderated by Dr. Barbara Schneeman, followed by an informal book signing and time to visit with the author.
Daniel Stone is a writer on environmental science, agriculture, and botany for National Geographic. Previously he was a White House correspondent for Newsweek and The Daily Beast. He also teaches environmental policy at Johns Hopkins University. After growing up in Los Angeles, he spent his youth in Davis, California, where he dirtied his fingernails in fields of peaches and strawberries.
The Food Explorer is the story of an adventurer botanist David Fairchild, who traveled the world at the turn of the 20th century in search of new foods—like avocados, mangoes, and kale—that are now in our supermarkets every day.
Dr. Barbara Schneeman is the former dean of UC Davis Department of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences and professor emeritus in both Nutrition and Food Science and Technology. She has served as USAID Higher Education Coordinator and director of the Office of Nutrition at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
