Last month I reported the unconfirmed visit of Slow Food International founder Carlo Petrini for a major speech tied to the U.S. release of his book, Slow Food Nation: Why our Food Should be Good, Clean, and Fair. Well, now it’s confirmed: Saturday, May 19, at 2 PM in Thorne Auditorium at Northwestern University Law School, 375 E. Chicago. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased through the Chicago Humanities Festival. Call 312-661-1028, ext. 40.

UPDATE: Slow Food Chicago says the book title has been changed from Slow Food Nation: A Blueprint for Changing the Way We Eat, despite what Amazon says.
