LEZING DOOR JONATHAN SAFRAN FOER: EATING ANIMALS

“Brilliant, thrilling, genius, breathtaking: such are the adjectives that have routinely been applied to Jonathan Safran Foer’s two award-winning novels. Now, at 32, a married man with small children, Foer has turned his attention to nonfiction, and to the food we eat. Eating Animals is not an appeal for vegetarianism, but a sustained, at times brutal look at the meat industry. With his gift for the poetic, Foer sweeps in aerial movements over the topic, taking us into the world of microbes and the realm of animal suffering, before delivering it finally to our table.  Join us for an evening with one of America’s brightest literary minds..”, aldus Russell Shorto van het John Adams institute. Moderator is Pieter van der Wielen. De lezing wordt georganiseerd door het John Adams Institute in samenwerking met uitgeverij Ambo Anthos.
