Join us for this eye-opening documentary and a virtual discussion

Join the Library and Reducetarian movement founder Brian Kateman about finding an acceptable middle ground between consuming no animal products and having a diet prominently featuring meat.

Ask anyone in the plant-based movement and the solution seems obvious: Stop eating meat.

But for many people, that stark solution is neither appealing nor practical. In "Meat Me Halfway," author and founder of the reducetarian movement Brian Kateman puts forth a realistic and balanced goal: mindfully reduce your meat consumption. It might seem strange for a leader of the plant-based movement to say, but meat is here to stay. The question is not how to ween society off meat, but how to make meat more healthy, more humane, and more sustainable.

The film screening will be followed by a virtual Q&A with Brian Kateman.

Free. RSVP for an event reminder. Recommended for grades 6+.
