Enter to Win a Copy of Jonathan Safran Foer's 'Eating Animals'
Jonathan Safran Foer's Eating Animals is now available in paperback, and you can enter to win a copy from heebnvegan!
This blockbuster book was first published in November, and it's already gone a long way toward getting the media and the general public talking about factory farming and vegetarianism. Foer has become a leading spokesperson for vegetarian advocacy, and after watching his interviews and seeing him speak in March, I'd be hard-pressed to find someone who's a better fit for the job.
Here's an excerpt of my review from when Eating Animals first came out:
After being an on-and-off vegetarian for much of his life, Foer set out to explore where meat comes from when his wife got pregnant with their first child and he had to make decisions about eating animals on someone else's behalf. The search that follows is part memoir, part journalism, and it delves deeply into the issue of where meat comes from. With Foer's revered knack for storytelling, Eating Animals takes readers on a journey that will make them find factory farms nothing short of repugnant. All this is done in a style that is very accessible to the general public and never too preachy or pushy of Foer's viewpoint.Enter to win a free paperback copy of Eating Animals!
