Based on the novel of the same title by Charles Nordhoff and James Norman Hall.
Normal burglars steal things of value, but Martin Railsback only steals things people won’t notice—a box of pasta here, a roll of toilet paper there. Then one day he accidentally knocks a toothbrush into a toilet and feels compelled to replace it, and he starts to rethink his whole approach to crime. Dicks’s humorous and heartwarming debut shows how Martin learns what it is that’s missing from his life.
Meet local farmers, sign up for a CSA share and support your community food system at the CSA Fair on Saturday, March 4, 2017 from 1-4 p.m. at the Robert A. Lee Recreation Center, 220 South Gilbert Street. This event, hosted by the Iowa City Farmers Market and the Johnson County Food Policy Council, is open to the public and there is no fee to participate.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) allows consumers direct access to fresh produce grown by area farmers. Customers purchase a “share” of produce up-front, sharing the risks and benefits of food production with the growers.
About the host organizations:
The Iowa City Farmers Market strives to serve culturally and economically diverse populations, and to increase access to fresh, locally produced, nourishing and safe foods and other products of local labor, for all patrons.
The Johnson County Food Policy Council, created by the Johnson County Board of Supervisors, is a volunteer community-led group with the purpose of improving dialogue and discussion and providing necessary advice on food and agriculture issues to the County, municipalities, community boards, local agencies, nongovernmental organizations, businesses, and other interested groups.
