Event Description: Dan Mathews, Vice President of PETA, will discuss and sign copies of his memoir, Committed

Dan Mathews is the irreverent force responsible for making PETA one of the most enduring, powerful and annoying pressure groups in the world, with over 1.2 million members. Recounting the most hilarious and horrific experiences of both his personal and professional life, Mathews delivers a witty, bold and passionate memoir that reveals how one man?s unyielding devotion to animals has helped change the world. Inspired by the forceful pro-vegetarian writings of philosophers Pythagoras and Plutarch, Mathews decided to become a full-time crusader. Mathews, who began at PETA in 1985 as the then-fledgling organization?s receptionist and worked his way up to Vice President, tells of his unorthodox coming-of-age and his spectacular rise to become one of today?s most famous firebrands. Illuminating and engaging, COMMITTED tells the remarkable story of an equally remarkable man who has lived life on his own terms. ?When I wake up each morning, my first thought isn?t, I want to help animals, but I want to have fun,? Mathews writes. ?But where is it written that just because you have devoted your life to fighting for a serious cause, you can?t have a good time doing it??

?Smart, silly and downright readable, with an unstoppable spirit. Like David Sedaris but with a mission.?
?Lily Tomlin
