Julian Baggini, Jack Monroe and Philip Lymbery on "The Politics of Food" at Aye Write festival, Glas
Julian Baggini's The Virtues of the Table looks at the ethics of eating, and questions some of the widely-held beliefs about food policy. Jack Monroe shot to fame with her blog - now book - A Girl Called Jack which detailed her innovative methods of surviving on less than £10 a week to feed herself and her son. While Philip Lymbery's Farmageddon shows the devastating effect the desire for cheap meat has had on an industry, the environment and our health.
