'Eating Animals: Eating Humanely' forum to be held

FAIRFIELD - Fairfield University’s College of Arts and Sciences will hold a roundtable discussion dubbed “Eating Animals: Eating Humanely,” which was "sparked by Fairfield Public Library's “One Book, One Town” program," organizers said in a statement.
"Area residents and members of the university are invited to attend the free program that will examine the issue of how people can eat meat and feel less guilty about it," the statement said.
The 90-minute presentation will begin at 7 p.m. March 14 in the Multimedia Room of the DiMenna-Nyselius Library.

“'Eating Animals: Eating Humanely' takes an in-depth look at the dilemma Americans face when choosing to eat animals," the statement said. Leading the discussion will be two prominent faculty members from Fairfield University, the statement said.

Dina Franceschi, associate professor of economics and Brian G. Walker, associate professor of biology will offer their perspective on the ethical and social issues that are associated with eating animals, the statement said.
Speakers will discuss the moral argument centered on Jonathan Safran Foer’s new book “Eating Animals.” A question and answer period will follow after the presentation.
"The professors say they hope to inspire a thoughtful debate on a topic that is both challenging and difficult for many people," the statement said,
