Join fellow FVA meet up members as we meet for dinner and then discuss "Ninety-Five: Meeting America's Farmed Animals in Stories and Photographs" edited by No Voice Unheard (http://www.novoiceunheard.org/). Their website describes the book in this way: "Our most recent release!Ninety-Five (the number of animal lives spared each year by one person’s decision to go vegan) is an anthology, in photos and stories, about America’s farmed animals. Winner of an Eric Hoffer Book Award, this beautiful book tells the remarkable stories of rescued farmed animals living on sanctuaries and in homes across the country." This book also won an Independent Publisher (IPPY) gold medal. Read what others are saying about this book:
"How amazing it is to learn from this most extraordinary book just how beautiful chickens, turkeys, pigs, cows and other farm animals can be. This is a rare and life-changing book. It evokes a sense of wonder, joy and awe, and a recognition of how interwoven we are with all of life." ~ John Robbins, author of The New Good Life and Diet for a New America
"One of the most beautiful books I have ever seen, in every respect: the photographs, the loving stories, the philosophy behind the stories, the delightful tales, the sheer exuberance of the animals and their human companions -- it is a perfect book! ... Captures something missing from almost all other books about farmed animals. There is so much heart in this book, to rival the heart that the animals themselves display." ~Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, author of When Elephants Weep, The Pig Who Sang to the Moon and The Face on Your Plate
The book is available for purchase at No Voice Unheard at a great price (http://www.novoiceunheard.org/). This book is also for sale at an unbelievably low price at Amazon (dot) com and at other online booksellers such as Barnes and Noble.
