You are invited to attend the June meeting of the Earthsave Readers Group on Friday, June 25th at 6:30pm at the restaurant OrganicLives, in Vancouver. We will be discussing the book "Animals as Persons: Essays on the Abolition of Animal Exploitation", by Gary Francione, as well as enjoying some delicious food at this new raw restaurant. If you missed the last dinner event we had there or want to try it out again, this is the perfect opportunity, as well as to meet and social with like-minded people. All are welcome to attend. We'll be meeting in the private culinary room, which will be a perfect meeting space to allow us to talk amongst ourselves.
Reading the book is not required to attend the meeting and join in on the food and the discussion, but if you do decide to read the book, please pick a chapter and tell us about it at the meeting. (please post here on the discussion area which chapter you'll be presenting on.)
Eating at OrganicLives is quite a treat. Lasagna, creamy zughetti, pizza and thai curry are just some of their unique and creative dishes. They also have amazing desserts, including tiramisu and a strawberry shortcake. Check out the OrganicLives website for more info with a full menu and photos of all their dishes here: www.organiclives.ca The price listed above ($16) is only an estimate of what you might want to spend for your meal, as we'll each be ordering off the menu. Entr?es start at about $16. An entr?e and dessert would be about $23.
Also, here is a recent Globe and Mail review of the restaurant: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/food-and-wine/restaurant-review-organiclives/article1589239/
Hope you can make it!
About the book:
A prominent and respected philosopher of animal rights law and ethical theory, Gary L. Francione is known for his criticism of animal welfare laws and regulations, his abolitionist theory of animal rights, and his promotion of veganism and nonviolence as the baseline principles of the abolitionist movement. In this collection, Francione advances the most radical theory of animal rights to date. Unlike Peter Singer, Francione maintains that we cannot morally justify using animals under any circumstances, and unlike Tom Regan, Francione's theory applies to all sentient beings, not only to those who have more sophisticated cognitive abilities.
