October 2016 Update: Good News and Plant-based Trends

Here is a quick little excerpt from Chapter Two of Project Animal Farm. It continues off from Chapter One, which I shared in the September newsletter. In case you missed it, here is the link to Chapter One. Happy reading!

BIG news: We’re taking Project Animal Farm global. The e-book became available globally in English earlier this month. The paperback became available here for residents of the United Kingdom and Europe. If you have friends or family in the U.K. or Europe, please spread the word!

I loved my speaking engagements at the Ottawa and Kingston Writers Festivals in the last couple of weeks. I spoke at the Kingston Writers Festival on September 29 and the Ottawa Writers Festival on October 15. Both attracted a terrific array of people of all ages.

The event in Kingston featured my youngest audience to date, mostly middle school students. They were incredibly engaged, interested, and intelligent. The event in Ottawa featured a conversation on stage with the festival’s Founding Director Neil Wilson, as well as an audience interested in food literacy. I am humbled to say that Project Animal Farm was well received at both events!

I am grateful to the festivals and their sponsors for hosting me. Both events were also supported by wonderful bookstores and tech teams as well.
