Whether you're vegan or a meat-eater, please join us at the West End Neighborhood Library, near the Foggy Bottom Metro, for a fascinating, one-of-a-kind (and possibly life-changing) presentation.
Dr. Melanie Joy explains—with heart and with research—how powerful cultural institutions influence our attitudes about animals, so that we are repulsed by the thought of eating most species, but eat a few without a second's thought.
The basic schedule is:
6:00 -- doors open; free light refreshments
6:45 to 7:45 -- presentation
7:45 to 8:45 -- Q and A / buy books / book-signing
