Meatonomics Launch Party

VegNews calls the book “riveting,” Publishers Weekly says it's “provocative and persuasive,” and John Robbins calls it “spectacularly important.” 

Join author David Robinson Simon for a party, talk and book signing marking the September release of MEATONOMICS (Conari Press, 2013). It’s the first book to explore the unseen economic forces that drive our animal food system and the strange ways these forces affect consumers’ spending, eating, health, prosperity, and longevity. In Simon’s eye-opening, fact-filled presentation, you’ll discover what makes this bizarre system tick and how it can be fixed.

Before the talk, enjoy the guitar stylings of vegan musician Paulina Logan. Afterwards, enjoy live music by actor and musician Jessy Schram. Vegan food, desserts, and beverages will be available for purchase. A portion of all book sales will be donated to the Animal Advocacy Museum. This event is free and open to all; please invite anyone you think may be interested.

David Robinson Simon is a lawyer and advocate for sustainable consumption. He works as general counsel for a healthcare company and serves on the board of the APRL Fund, a non-profit dedicated to protecting animals. David received his B.A. from U.C. Berkeley and his J.D. from the University of Southern California.

    Do you know approximately what time the talk will take place? I won't be able to be there for the whole thing, but I don't want to miss the talk. Thanks.
