Book Reading: The Vegetarian's Guide to Eating Meat by Melissa Landrigan


We're delighted to welcome back local author Melissa Landrigan at this event co-hosted by the Appalachian Science Writers!

As a vegetarian getting closer to the source of her food, eventually even visiting a slaughterhouse and hunting elk, Landrigan realized that the most ethical way of eating was to know her food—whether meat or vegetable—and prepare it herself, on her own terms, to eat with family and friends.

Marissa Landrigan holds an MFA from Iowa State University and is currently an assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh–Johnstown, where she teaches creative, professional, and digital writing.
