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.
