Novelist and essayist Jonathan Safran Foer joins chef/author Samin Nosrat (Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat) on stage for a high-spirited event that tackles our primary global crisis and
eloquently persuades us to eat differently.

In We Are the Weather, Jonathan Safran Foer explores the central global dilemma of our time in a surprising, deeply personal way. The task of saving the planet will involve a great reckoning with ourselveswith our all-too-human reluctance to sacrifice immediate comfort for the sake of the future. We have, he reveals, turned our planet into a farm for growing animal products, and the consequences are catastrophic. Only collective action will save our home and way of life. And it all starts with what we eatand dont eatfor breakfast.

"Foer's message is both moving and painful, depressing and optimistic it will  force readers to rethink their commitment to combating 'the greatest crisis humankind has  ever faced.'"  Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Jonathan Safran Foer is the author of the novels Everything Is Illuminated,  Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and Here I Am, plus the nonfiction book Eating Animals. His work has received numerous awards and has been translated into thirty-six languages. also serves as a board member for Farm Forward, a nonprofit organization that implements innovative strategies to promote conscientious food choices, reduce farmed animal suffering, and advance sustainable agriculture.
