'Processed Meats': Author Nicole Walker Looks At Personal Life To Explore Ties Between Communities, Individuals

The pandemic’s impact over the last year or so has been unsettling and uncomfortable for almost everyone. And for a certain group of us, the word “disaster” might be the best descriptor. But disasters don’t just emerge because of global uncertainty. Sometimes, they’re a part of navigating our everyday challenges.

In her new book "Processed Meats: Essays on Food, Flesh, and Navigating Disaster," Flagstaff-based writer Nicole Walker opens up her personal life to explore — in part — how we exist as individuals and communities. 

The Show spoke with Walker for more about her work.
