Great Animal Rights / Veg Books Wanted

Bay Area Vegetarians’ Food for Thought book club is now meeting monthly.  We will be discussing general non-fiction veg/AR books on odd-numbered months, and animal rights philosophy books on even-numbered months.  Most meetings are held in San Francisco, but we occasionally have meetings on the Peninsula.

Future books include Case for Animal Rights by Tom Regan, Ethics into Action:  Henry Spira and the Animal Rights Movement by Peter Singer, and Slaughterhouse by Gail Eisnitz.

If you’d like to share a suggestion for a great book to read, please comment with your suggestion!

If you’re interested in learning more about the Food for Thought Book Club, please see the event calendar for upcoming book discussions or join our Food for Thought Book Club list, which is a very low-volume yahoogroups list dedicated to book club organizing.
