"Animal Factory" author speaks

Animal FactorySorry for the late notice, but if you want to hear from a guy who's been billed as a modern-day Upton Sinclair, you've got about an hour to get over to East Baltimore.

David Kirby is author of a new book, "Animal Factory: The Looming Threat of Industrial Pig, Dairy and Poultry Farms to Humans and the Environment."

He'll be speaking and selling his book from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Center for a Livable Future at Johns Hopkins' Bloomberg School of Public Health, Sheldon Hall, Room W1214, 615 N. Wolfe Street.


 Dr. Robert Lawrence, director of Bloomberg's Center for a Livable Future, says this of the speaker: "Kirby documents the scandal of today's industrial food system in the same compelling way Upton Sinclair alerted Americans to the abuses of the meatpacking industry in his 1906 The Jungle."

Wow, the spam at 8:19 PM is the totally unsubtle crap that one usually sees in the comment sections of the Sun website proper.

About this blog
Richard Gorelick was appointed The Baltimore Sun's restaurant critic in September 2010. Before joining the paper staff fulltime, he contributed freelance criticism and features articles about food to area and regional publications. Along the way, he dispatched for short-distance trucking companies, shilled for cultural non-profits, and assisted in cognitive neurology research – never the subject, always the control.

He takes restaurants seriously but not himself, and his favorite restaurant is the one you love, too.
