Friday Keynote: Jonathan Safran Foer

  • Friday, 09/15/2017: 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
  • Room: Hilton, Holiday Ballroom 6

Description

Over the course of 2006, Jonathan Safran Foer visited animal farms across the country "from small, family-run organic farms, to factory farms that produce more waste than Los Angeles " in an effort to get at the most fundamental question about food, which is not "Can this be eaten?" but "Should this be eaten?".

Mr. Foer documented his road adventure and the ecological crisis he observed in a nonfiction book called Eating Animals, which was an instant New York Times and international bestseller. In 2010 he was included on The New Yorker's 20 under 40 list of the best young writers in the US.
