Book Launch Party and Signing with local author and activist Hope Bohanec

The Ultimate Betrayal: Is There Happy Meat? presented by Hope Bohanec

Come join us as we introduce an important book to the world! This new book lifts the veil of secrecy surrounding animal farming, offering a rare look inside the world of alternative animal agriculture. Drawing on peer-reviewed research, worker and rescuer testimony and meeting the farmed animals themselves, The Ultimate Betrayal explores the recent shift in labeling animals processed for food and the misinformation around this new way of farming. Small scale farms are the latest craze, local is the new black and various methods of alternative animal agriculture with feel-good labels are all the rage. It is now popular to express that your eggs are cage-free and that your meat is organic. But is this trend really the answer to the plentiful problems of raising animals for food? What do the labels really mean? Is free-range better for the environment? Is organic more humane? Is there really happy meat? This presentation offers answers to these critical questions.

5:00 pm- vegan potluck
6:00 pm- book presentation
7:00 pm- book signing and cake!
