March Update

I have good news! Project Animal Farm was recently longlisted for the Chatauqua Prize, an honor that recognizes books for their literary merit. Also, the book was recently included in a list of three must-read books by The Food Revolution Network! “This is a gripping story that will forever change how you think about animals, food, and life itself,” writes the Network.

I also returned on The Agenda with Steve Paikin, the flagship current affairs program of TV Ontario. I chatted with Steve and other panelists about the advantages of a plant-based diet. You can view the episode here!

Here is an article about Project Animal Farm that appeared in the Post Independent in Colorado, and here’s a review in literary journal, Kudzu House. “Project Animal Farm is a relevant, poignant, and remarkable account of a young woman’s journey through the world of factory farming and agribusiness, and is a must-read for anyone interested in animal ethics, environmental sustainability, and food politics,” writes Sabeen Ahmed in Kudzu House.
