Getting acquainted and book discussion

  • Mar 9, 2014 · 2:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This first meeting will be an opportunity to get to know each other, first of all, and to  discuss one of my favorite books:  "Why Do We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows: An Introduction to Carnism" by Melanie Joy.  She's an excellent writer and inspiring speaker and, if you haven't already picked up this book, I think (and hope) you'll find it worthwhile.   If you don't have a chance to finish the book before we get together, that's OK too.

Since it's our first meeting, give some thought to other books or films you might enjoy sharing with the group and what your hopes would be for this meetup.  I have some ideas and I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts and perspectives!

Light vegan snacks will be served.

    I live in Philly and take public transit so not sure how often I can come up, but this book club sounds great and I already have this book. Hope to meet you all soon!

    Amy, that's great. I really admire Melanie Joy. Not only is she an excellent writer but she's also an excellent speaker. For those who prefer to watch as opposed to read, or those who might like to read and then watch, check out this youtube video of her giving a presentation:
    Happy reading (and/or watching)!
