The Kalamazoo Public Library has picked two books for its "Reading Together" program next year. Both have to do with food and farming.

One is The American Way of Eating: Undercover at Walmart, Appleby's, Farm Fields and the Dinner Table by Tracie McMillan. The other is Novella Carpenter's Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer. Library officials say the books were selected because of a growing demand by people to know more about the food they eat.

This is the first time that the Kalamazoo library has picked more than one book for Reading together. It began ten years ago to encourage people to read and talk about books.
