If you go, you must be on time.


Atlanta History Center: Jonathan Safran Foer, Eating Animals Presented by Literary Center at Margaret Mitchell House

Wednesday, September 01, 2010 7:00 PM

Eating Animals is a carefully researched, artfully told, funny, and personal exploration of what we eat and why, how what we eat affects our lives and the environment, and how every individual can make seemingly small choices that will enact big change. Jonathan Safran Foer, author of the acclaimed novel Everything Is Illuminated, delves into the environmental and social effects of factory farming and relates personal stories that influenced his decision to become a vegetarian. Eating Animals will move readers — and eaters — of every persuasion to participate in the ongoing conversation about what we eat and challenge them to take a naked look at what is too often conveniently brushed aside.

This lecture is held at Atlanta History Center. Admission is $5 for members and $10 for nonmembers. Reservations are required for all lectures. For more information, visit MargaretMitchellHouse.com. To purchase tickets, please call 404.814.4150.
