Toronto Animal Book Club – First Meeting – Sunday, April 21st 4pm

After being inspired by a recent post on Our Hen House, a group of us has decided to start a Veg/Animal Book Club in Toronto, our first meeting is April 21st at 4pm. Location to be announced once I get final numbers. To find out more information feel free to contact me directly, on twitter – @mdgee, or join our facebook group. We’ve opted to start with The Sexual Politics of Meat by Carol J Adams – a book that has inspired a lot of people (as indicated by the Defiant Daughters book released recently) and inspired a lot of criticism as well/ (and more from an Animal Voices interview with Mirha-Soleil Ross – transcript) We’re looking to create a positive, respectful space to share, read, learn, and talk about animal friendly literature and non-fiction. You can learn more about goals and see a list of potential future books here, Hope to see you at our first meeting!

Hey Toronto – How about a veg/animal rights book club?

I’ve been inspired by a recent post on Our Hen House (as I often am) but this time it’s made me really want to take things offline. Recently they posted about the Animal Defense Fund’s online book club, which I think is an awesome fantastic idea – but – I’d like to see if there is any interest in making that happen in real life in Toronto. I know we’re all busy people, with conflicting schedules, but we could meet once a month on the third Tuesday evening (for example) or another mutually agreeable time/date of the month. So Toronto – are you interested? Let’s make this happen. Send me an email, send me a tweet (@mdgee), add yourself to the group on facebook, give me your thoughts, and most of all join in.
