He will talk about the larger Farm to Table movement and the importance of locally sourced food. Museum Moments will begin at noon on Thursday at the museum at 114 Cleveland Street in New Albany. It is open to the public. Friends of the Library will host a light lunch beginning at 11:30. For more information call the museum at 662-538-0014.
