The Last Hunger Season: A Year in an African Farm Community on the Brink of Change by Roger Thurow is the 2013-14 One Book One Northwestern selection. The book chronicles a year in the life of four small-scale farmers in Western Kenya who, with help from a social enterprise organization founded by a Northwestern graduate, begin to transcend cyclical poverty and hunger.

A note from the Director

"Tackling hunger requires the truly interdisciplinary approach that Northwestern is known for," says Hendrik Spruyt, director of the Buffett Center, this year’s One Book host. "By showing how individuals can make a difference in confronting seemingly insurmountable problems, The Last Hunger Season serves as a clarion call for our students to go out and engage with the world”.
