Exploding the myths of factory farming with Philip Lymbery and Bill Oddie

 

From the author of the internationally acclaimed Farmageddon, Philip Lymbery's riveting sequel Dead Zone takes us on an eye-opening investigative journey across the globe, focussing on a dozen iconic species one-by-one and looking in each case at the role that industrial farming is playing in their plight.

Philip's latest work is a passionate wake-up call for us all, laying bare the myths that prop up factory farming before exploring what we can do to save the planet with healthy food. 

Join us for an exclusive opportunity to hear from Philip in person as he shares his biggest concerns about the way we produce our food with renowned entertainer and conservationist, Bill Oddie. Together Philip and Bill will produce an essential evening for anyone keen to learn more about saving our planet, our animal neighbours and ourselves!  

Tickets are £10 and include a complimentary drink (or two) before the talk, and the opportunity to have Dead Zone and Farmageddon signed by Philip. If you buy a book with your ticket for £15, please send your postal address to Institute@Bloomsbury.com to have your copy dispatched by post.  

Follow @BloomsburyInst  for updates and share this event with interested friends and family. We hope to see you there!
