‘Jonathan Safran Foer’

I love Jonathan Safran Foer. With equal parts romantic love and wanting-to-be-him love (it’s real, look it up). He’s accomplished more in his short years (just a few more than me) that I ever will, and I accept that fact. And today, I found out that a) he’s originally from DC and b) he’s actual, in real life, coming to DC– tomorrow!
JSF will be at Sixth and I tomorrow at 7 to read and discuss his new book, Eating Animals. It’s his first non-fiction book, after Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, both of which are amazing. This new one tackles our food, and the moral decision not to eat animals, which he came to after his son was born. Excellent stuff.
