Event Description:
Critically acclaimed author Jonathan Safran Foer is coming to classrooms around the world this fall as part of Farm Forward's latest educational outreach program. Foer will meet virtually with thousands of high school and college students on Wednesday, October 3 to discuss the issues raised in his international best-seller Eating Animals. Through eight videoconference sessions, provided free of charge by Farm Forward, Foer will lead discussions with students on the pressing problems with today's food industry, including such issues as animal welfare, environmental degradation, avian influenza, ag-gag, the plight of farmers, and more.

Foer's virtual visit to UNC is hosted by the Institute of Professional Ethics and is free and open to the public. He will be online with us from 12:20-12:55 but attendees are welcome to come early and stay late for extended local discussion. Feel free to bring a lunch
