Nicolette Hahn Himan

Kepler's was pleased to have Nicolette Hahn Himan come to the store on March 26, 2009 to read from her book, Righteous Porkchop: Finding a Life and Good Food Beyond Factory Farms. Event host Liz Silver:
Though a vegetarian herself, Nicolette Hahn Niman makes an eloquent spokesperson for compassionate carnivorism, the alternative to the industrialized production of meat, poultry and dairy.
Nicolette and her husband Bill are a beautiful, glowing (maybe it's the imminent arrival of their first child) couple: they drip health.
Nicolette's presentation is crammed with facts, but they go down easy; she comes across as passionate, yet fair. Indeed, her Powerpoint pix could have been much more inflammatory.

Though we were prepared for a small presence from the pro-animal forces, it never materialized. The choir at this event was, indeed, already converted, which made for a very easygoing Q & A.
