David Kirby to Discuss Harm of Factory Farms at Embry-Riddle Town Hall Forum
David Kirby Daytona Beach, Fla., April 2, 2010 -- Award-winning author David Kirby will discuss his new book Animal Factory: The Looming Threat of Industrial Pig, Dairy, and Poultry Farms to Humans and the Environment on Thursday, April 15, at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s next President’s Speaker Series event.
Kirby, a contributor to The Huffington Post, is the author of the bestselling book Evidence of Harm: Mercury in Vaccines and the Autism Epidemic – A Medical Controversy, which was a finalist for the New York Public Library Helen Bernstein Award for Excellence in Journalism, and has appeared in media outlets such as Larry King, CNN, Don Imus, and Air America. His new book, Animal Factory, is a dramatic exposé of factory farms and the devastating impact they have on human health, the environment, and the economy.
Kirby will be interviewed from 5:30-7 p.m. before an assembled audience in the atrium of Embry-Riddle’s College of Aviation and a live call-in audience on 1150AM WNDB radio. Afterward, Kirby will sign copies of his book, which will be available for sale. Click here for a three-page summary of the information presented in Animal Factory.
Although the 90-minute forums are designed to engage Embry-Riddle students, faculty, and staff on issues of public policy, they are also free and open to the general public.
