Jonathan Safran Foer Visits CRLS

Jonathan spoke about ideas from his new book, We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast, including climate change, the food industry, animal welfare, and other topics. In this book, he contends, "saving the planet will involve a great reckoning with ourselves―with our all-too-human reluctance to sacrifice immediate comfort for the sake of the future." He challenged all in attendance to begin by making small changes that will ultimately have a big impact. Part of the presentation included time for Jonathan to answer insightful questions posed by CRLS students. Jonathan's visit was very timely given this week's Global Climate strikes. 

Thank you to Porter Square Books for bringing Jonathan to CRLS and to Emily and Kendall for organizing this visit so that so many CRLS classes could hear this important and timely message.
