Martha's Vineyard Author Series: Michael Pollan
Sponsored by the Vineyard Gazette and the MV Author Series
The acclaimed writer turns his focus to altered states of consciousness. How to Change Your Mind is Pollan's gripping account of a journey to a new frontier in our understanding of the mind, the self, and our place in the world. Pollan investigates the revolution taking place around psychedelic drugs and what they reveal about the human mind. The true subject of Pollan's mental travelogue is the eternal puzzle of human consciousness and how we can do our best to be fully present and find meaning in our lives.
For the past twenty years, Michael Pollan has been writing books and articles about the places where the human and natural worlds intersect: food, agriculture, gardens, drugs, and architecture. He is the author of the bestsellers In Defense of Food: An Eaters Manifesto and The Omnivores Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals, which was named one of the ten best books of 2006 by the New York Times and the Washington Post.
