Reading at the Table

The Slow Food Southern Arizona Book Group

“The only rock we eat, salt has shaped civilization from the very beginning, and its story is a glittering, often surprising part of the history of humankind. A substance so valuable it served as currency, salt has influenced the establishment of trade routes and cities, provoked and financed wars, secured empires, and inspired revolutions.  Populated by colorful characters and filled with an unending series of fascinating details, Salt by Mark Kurlansky is a supremely entertaining, multi-layered masterpiece”. (Goodreads)


Join our salty discussion on April 26, 3 pm at the mid-town home of one of our readers.
