Teaching Guide: Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

Right from the start—with the publication of her first novel The Bean Trees--Barbara Kingsolver's work found a place in high school and college classrooms. Why? Because Barbara writes about universal themes and concerns—family relationships, friendship, love, justice, nature, cultural differences, and building community—her work is filled with familiar touchstones and jolting insights.

In her latest work, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life, Barbara Kingsolver is joined by her husband and oldest daughter. Together, they tell us about keeping their vow that, for one year, they’d only buy food raised in their own neighborhood, grow it themselves, or learn to live without it.

We've put together a teaching guide to help you add Animal, Vegetable, Miracle to your curriculum. Let us know if you'd like an examination copy.
