CRETE | The Crete Public Library, 1177 Main St., offers “The Vegetarian's Dilemma” from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 23.
Vegetarianism is a popular concept in American food consumption, but what does it mean? There are many questions about eliminating meat from one’s diet. Is it healthier? Is it difficult to do? Is it a moral/ethical decision? These and other questions about being a vegetarian will be answered by Lee Helbert, director of Testing Services at Prairie State College.
This program is part of PSC's One Book One Community reading program which selected "The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals," by Michael Pollan as its next title.
