Books are arriving and the college tour has begun…

"Big Blue" has hit the street.

Yesterday, I heard from a friend here in Stonington that her Healthy Eating, Healthy World copy had arrived. Perfect timing, with over 500 copies sitting in my living room, a few of the people at next week’s launch party will have already read our new book and will be able to tell others what they might expect.

It looks like our crowd will be over 200 people at the party — including the brother of a former president of the United States and the uncle of another. Can you guess his last name?In the interest of his privacy, we will not be revealing his identity at our party.

Also, my friend and book endorser, Alexandra Stoddard, just told me that Meryl Streep will be in her home next week as the filming for her new movie takes place here in Stonington. Alexandra tells me that she may try to influence Ms. Streep and her fellow cast members (Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carrell) to attend our book launch party.

College Tour. As I have blogged and written about in our book, my feeling is that the young people of the world will be leading the “great food revolution of the 21st century” and I tried to connect with them on every single page. That said, I have now begun my tour of New England Schools and in the past seven days have hit five of them: Yale, the University of Rhode Island, Brown University, Harvard, and M.I.T.

Brown University

Brown University in Providence, RI, just 45 minutes from my home in Stonington, CT

And last night I got a call from the special events coordinator at the Brown University BookStore, inviting us to participate in an on-campus event there on October 6. He said that the store will be ordering our book and that his event will feature two authors; me and the author of a new book featuring the farmers markets of New England.

With college students over six times as likely to consider themselves “vegetarian” than the average adult in the USA, I have long felt that they are the real key to rolling out this movement toward a global plant-based diet-style for humans. In an earlier blog, I told them so:

About J. Morris Hicks

A former strategic management consultant and senior corporate executive with Ralph Lauren in New York, J. Morris Hicks has always focused on the "big picture" when analyzing any issue. In 2002, after becoming curious about our "optimal diet," he began a study of what we eat from a global perspective ---- discovering many startling issues and opportunities along the way. In addition to an MBA and a BS in Industrial Engineering, he holds a certificate in plant-based nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies, where he has also been a member of the board of directors since 2012. Having concluded that our food choices hold the key to the sustainability of our civilization, he has made this his #1 priority---exploring all avenues for influencing humans everywhere to move back to the natural plant-based diet for our species.
