Reading To Be Green

Des Moines Public Library will host Nicolette Hahn Niman, author The Righteous Porkchop: Finding a Life and Good Food Beyond Factory Farms, during their "Reading to be Green" series on February 26th.

Jan Kaiser, the event coordinator, notes the timeliness of Nicolette’s event, in reference to the Agriprocessors Inc. raid this past May. The company employed underage workers and illegal immigrants, violating several labor laws, as well as laws (and kosher requirements) relating to the safe handling and processing of meat.
