Vegans have their say
Here's a side dish of veganism to go with all the scrapple talk we've had around here lately.
One of the nation's most prominent vegans, T. Colin Campbell, will speak Saturday in Catonsville.
Campbell, a Cornell University nutritional biochemistry professor, is author of "The China Study," a book that finds a correlation between animal-based diets and disease.
Campbell will speak at an event put on by Earthsave, an all-volunteer nonprofit that promotes veganism.
The other featured speaker will be Bruce Friedrich, a vice president with People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals. He will give a talk titled, "Veganism: The Only Diet for a Small Planet."
Both speakers will sell and sign books at the event, which takes place at the Women's Club of Catonsville, 10 St. Timothy's Lane. The evening will begin with complementary light refreshments at 5:30 p.m. Speakers will begin at 5:50 p.m.
