    Join us in Mac's Backs-Books On Coventry's basement as we discuss the brand new "Farm to Fable: The Fictions of our Animal-Consuming Culture" by Robert Grillo.

    Why do the vast majority of us continue to consume animals when we could choose otherwise? What are the cultural forces that drive our food choices? These are the fundamental questions Farm to Fable seeks to answer in two ways: by asserting that our beliefs about eating animals remain largely unexamined and therefore unchallenged, and by demonstrating how the fictions of popular culture continually reinforce these beliefs and behaviors. Farm to Fable deconstructs these fictions for those who truly want to know not only where our food comes from, but why we make the choices that we do. For seasoned animal advocates as well, this book will provide important insights.

    (check out this excellent review by author Lee Hall:

    *** Special announcement: Author, Robert Grillo, will be Skyping in with our discussion beginning at 8pm!!

    Robert Grillo is an activist, author and public speaker. He is the director of Free from Harm, which he founded in 2009 to expose animal agriculture's impact on non-human animals, vulnerable communities and the environment. As a marketing communications professional for over twenty years, Grillo has worked on large food industry accounts through which he acquired a behind-the-scenes perspective on food branding and marketing. Farm to Fable is his first book. He lives in Chicago.
