Where: Mac's Backs Books, 1820 Coventry Rd, Cleveland Heights OH (basement)
Join the Cleveland Vegan Book Club as we discuss "Animal Liberation" by Peter Singer.
Since its original publication in 1975, this groundbreaking work has awakened millions of people to the existence of "speciesism"—our systematic disregard of nonhuman animals—inspiring a worldwide movement to transform our attitudes to animals and eliminate the cruelty we inflict on them.
In Animal Liberation, author Peter Singer exposes the chilling realities of today's "factory farms" and product-testing procedures—destroying the spurious justifications behind them, and offering alternatives to what has become a profound environmental and social as well as moral issue. An important and persuasive appeal to conscience, fairness, decency, and justice, it is essential reading for the supporter and the skeptic alike.
Mac's has Animal Liberation in stock and is offering a 20% discount! Be sure to mention that you're with our book club to receive the discount. Also available via their online store here: http://www.macsbacks.com/book/9780061711305
Mac's Backs on Coventry is a local independent bookstore which has a large selection of vegan-focused books and also hosts the Cleveland VegFest's Marketplace bookstore.
Cleveland Vegan Book Club features books on various aspects of veganism including health, ethics, environmental issues, social justice, etc.
Join us for some consciousness-raising discussion and a great opportunity to network and build community with others who care about animals, ecology, healthy eating and social justice!
