Lierre Keith is a writer, gardener, feminist and badass. Her book, The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice and Sustainability, was written after long, honest inspection of lifestylism and the roots of suffering and utter rape and destruction of the planet. What has happened since that book was published has been a complete schit stirring of the radical community. Well done! From being ostracized to being physically attacked by cops playing dress-up as anarchists, her book has made an effect. She joins us tonight to discuss the ideas put forth, the heartbreak in the realizations and the cleansing act of living. "Last week I went to hear Noam Chomsky in Oakland and on a table outside the theatre I found The Vegetarian Myth. I've been reading it for the past week. I think it is one of the most important books people, masses of them, can read, as we try with all our might, intelligence, skill, hope, dream and memory, to turn the disastrous course the planet is on. Or rather that we are on because of our abuse of the planet. It's a wonderful book, full of thoughtful, soulful teachings, and appropriate rage. My admiration for Lierre's sharing of life experience and knowledge is complete. Thank you." --Alice Walker
