"Animal Factory" author speaks
Sorry 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."
