About the Event

Eating Animals 

by Jonathan Safran Foer   

Hosted by Thenuka - thinking about becoming a vegetarian for a while now but I haven't pulled the trigger.

Non-Fiction (341 pages, 10 hours and 14 minutes on Audible)

Description: Like many young Americans, Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between enthusiastic carnivore and occasional vegetarian. As he became a husband, and then a father, the moral dimensions of eating became increasingly important to him. Faced with the prospect of being unable to explain why we eat some animals and not others, Foer set out to explore the origins of many eating traditions and the fictions involved with creating them.

Traveling to the darkest corners of our dining habits, Foer raises the unspoken question behind every fish we eat, every chicken we fry, and every burger we grill. Part memoir and part investigative report, Eating Animals is a book that, in the words of the Los Angeles Times, places Jonathan Safran Foer "at the table with our greatest philosophers."

Intent of session: To create a timely discussion around the ethics of meat at a time where climate change, vegetarianism/veganism, and advances in the creation of synthetic are advancing rapidly.
