Author Max Watman was traumatized by a pink-slime burger. In his new memoir, Harvest: Field Notes from a Far-Flung Pursuit of Real Food, he vows to get back to real food and his roots in rural Virginia. He tries it all — hunting, fishing, gardening, pickling and preserving — but none of it is as easy as he thought it would be. Hear about his experiences when Watman speaks at the Library of Virginia from noon to 1 p.m. on March 24, followed by a book signing. Library of Virginia, 800 E. Broad St., 692-3500 or lva.virginia.gov .
