A few years ago, a young activist named Ben Davidow decided to give away more than fifty copies of my book Meat Market. He’s just published an essay about the experience, relating how recipients were affected by the book, and what he learned from putting the book into so many hands.
When you do animal protection, there’s a lot to be gained by reading essays by fellow activists. This is particularly the case when an essay reveals experiences that forced the writer to modify his or her approach. In this respect, two of the best such essays are “Why Vegan Outreach?” by Joe Espinosa and Marsha Forsman, and “Letter to a Young Matt,” by Matt Ball. Davidow’s new essay is every bit as worth reading as the essays I’ve just cited. Link.
