"Eating Animals" by Jonathan Safran Foer

Wednesday, May 4, 2022, 6 p.m.

Eating Animals details the gut-wrenching truth about the price paid by various social and ecological environments – not least the animals themselves – in order to put meat on our tables more quickly and conveniently than ever before. A novelistic account of an intellectual journey, Eating Animals is a fresh look at the ethical debate around meat-eating, including a valuable exploration of options, for those so inclined, to do so more responsibly, making this an important book not just for vegetarians but for all those mindful about the significant consequences of their dietary choices.
