Read about the book below and the reviews. See you next year at the first Bookclub Meetup : ) About Eating Animals, the book Like many others, Jonathan Safran Foer spent his teenage and college years oscillating between omnivore and vegetarian. But on the brink of fatherhood—facing the prospect of having to make dietary choices on a child’s behalf—his casual questioning took on an urgency. This quest ultimately required him to visit factory farms in the middle of the night, dissect the emotional ingredients of meals from his childhood, and probe some of his most primal instincts about right and wrong. This book is what he found. Brilliantly synthesizing philosophy, literature, science, memoir, and his own detective work, Eating Animals explores the many stories we use to justify our eating habits—folklore and pop culture, family traditions and national myth, apparent facts and inherent fictions.

    It was a great opportunity to share my thoughts on this awesome book. This was the first time I've done a book club before and it was really fun. Great discussion questions. I also liked that we were able to connect some the ideas in this book to other resources/books - gave me some ideas for further learning.
