Eating Animals in College Classes- Support for

Letter published in support of 'Eating Animals' for UNC and Duke summer reading program

As was reported last week on the AR-News list, , peta2 , VegNews , Ecorazzi , and several other websites, Duke University and UNC have chosen 'Eating Animals' for their joint summer reading program.

I am writing today to share the news that the UNC paper published a letter today  that is supportive of the book's selection, and is critical of the newspaper's editorial board for it's earlier dismissive comments in regards to the book, and also to the consequences of our food choices.

In today's letter to the editor, the student writes: "Sadly, the Editorial Board demonstrated its lack of familiarity with the book while showing their complete shortsightedness -- the connection between what we eat and arguably every major problem the future leaders of North Carolina will face in our local communities, state, and world is incredibly strong and notable."

You can read the whole letter--and add a comment, if you like -- at .
