Jonathan Safran Foer: Eating Animals

Tue, Sep 21 2010 - 7:00pm

Jonathan Safran Foer

Author, Everything Is Illuminated and Eating Animals

Foer looks at our dining habits, insatiable appetites and the cultural meaning of food. He explores the ethical, environmental and health risks behind commercial fishing and factory farming and discusses his journey from carnivore to vegetarian. Hear from the man that actress Natalie Portman claims changed her from a “20-year vegetarian to a vegan activist.”
