A Year in an African Farm Community on the Brink of Change

September 18, 2012

Hour 1:           What is life like for Africa’s small farmers – many of whom are women and most of whom struggle to even feed their families year-round? We’ll spend this hour with Roger Thurow, senior fellow for Global Agriculture and Food Policy at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs [1] and author of the new book “The Last Hunger Season: A Year in an African Farm Community on the Brink of Change [2]” (PublicAffairs, 2012).
