On Wednesday, Nov. 15, White Oak Pastures’ owner Will Harris and his team are hosting a book launch party for public health journalist and author Maryn McKenna at Miller Union in Atlanta. McKenna’s new book, Big Chicken: The Incredible Story of How Antibiotics Created Modern Agriculture and Changed the Way the World Eats, is an investigative narrative that traces chicken’s meteoric rise from scarce treat to ubiquitous global commodity and reveals the astounding role of antibiotics in industrial farming.
The party takes place on Miller Union’s patio from 5 to 7 p.m., and McKenna will be in attendance to sign books and speak with guests. Tickets to the event are available online for $30 per person, which includes a copy of the book, wine and hors d’oeuvres from chef Steven Satterfield featuring White Oak Pastures poultry. Miller Union is located at 999 Brady Avenue, NW. For more information, call 678-733-8550 or visit millerunion.com.
