Join us for a lively discussion on the new book "Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows: An Introduction to Carnism". Whether you read the entire book or you read a few chapters join us and add your opinions. If you are an experienced vegetarian or brand new this should be an interesting book for all. Poor Richard's has a wide selection of food and coffee tea and live music starts at 7:30 pm for those interested. Note: This book is available at the library but there may be a waiting list. Read the reviews on this book below. Hope to see you there for our 2nd Bookclub Meetup of the year : )
Why We Love Dogs... is an altogether remarkable book that could transform the way society feels about eating animals. You cannot read this book without learning something new and without pondering your relation to the animal world. This is a profound and deeply satisfying book that is destined to become a classic." --Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, author of the best-selling When Elephants Weep, Dogs Never Lie about Love, The Pig Who Sang to the Moon, and The Face on Your Plate "This eye-opening book makes us question what we really mean when we say we love animals. Anyone who has ever loved a dog or a cat or a hamster or a bird will find abundant food for thought here." --John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America, The Food Revolution, and Healthy at 100 "A thoughtful book full of substance and style. It should be required reading." --Kathy Freston, author of The New York Times bestselling Quantum Wellness NOTE: Date change from March 4 to the 11th.
