MEETUP: Jonathan Safran Foer, famed author of the vegan standard Eating Animals will be giving a talk as part of the Chicago Humanities Festival and promoting his new book We Are the Weather.
For those interested, we'll be meeting ~30 min before the talk to get seats together, then following the talk we'll head over to Colectivo Coffee (https://goo.gl/maps/nt3np7cWaaoL1yu97 for a drink and to discuss.
TICKETS: **Very Important** Everyone attending is responsible for getting tickets for themselves. A number of ticket options are available to please review carefully. I selected Main Floor Public + Book, so I suspect there may be a book signing afterwards.

Hope you can join us!!
OFFICIAL EVENT DESCRIPTION: Every day, it seems, brings news of another environmental disaster. In the face of increasingly dire climate reports, what’s an environmentally-conscious citizen to do? It’s simple, says Jonathan Safran Foer: Saving the planet starts at breakfast. Ten years after Eating Animals, his in-depth examination of the moral implications of meat consumption in America, Foer turns his attention to the environmental impacts of eating animals in his newest work, We Are The Weather. This conversation with Foer and WBEZ food and culture reporter Monica Eng will have you considering your own power to improve the planet just by changing what you eat.
