Book Signing at Borders a Big Success

UPC president Karen Davis discussed the turkey industry and vegetarianism at a successful cookbook-signing on Friday evening, November 10th, at Borders Books & Music in Rockville, MD. Seventy copies of Instead of Chicken, Instead of Turkey were sold in less than an hour as people lined up to have their books signed and taste the exquisite food--barbecue chickenless "chicken" nuggets, stuffed tofu, and Texas Raspberry Sheet Cake--beautifully prepared for the occasion by UPC members. A section on turkeys from the powerful video Hidden Suffering gave the audience a look at the horrible way turkeys are treated in order for them to become "turkey." The contrast between that horror and our delicious food and recipes was obvious. We are thankful to Borders Books & Music for sponsoring this gala evening.
