Bexley residents PhDs Andrew Mills and Jessica Garrett Mills discuss the ethics of eating meat, as well as their own experiences in raising a family on a plant-based diet.

Meatless Mondays, vegan curious, flexitarian, plant-based diets? These are just a few of the trendy terms revealing that growing numbers of Americans are thinking about and choosing to reduce or eliminate animals from their food sources. But what are the reasons motivating people to make such shifts? What does a vegan diet actually look like? And is reducing or eliminating meat from your diet prohibitively expensive or time consuming?

In "Eating Plants: The Practice and Philosophy of Veganism", Bexley residents and PhDs Andrew Mills and Jessica Garrett Mills explore the Who, What, Why and How of Veganism (and other diets with reduced amounts of meat). They'll discuss some of the philosophical questions and arguments surrounding the ethics of eating meat, as well as their experiences in navigating their own diet decisions and raising a family on vegan food sources.

__

Andrew Mills is a Professor of Philosophy and Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Otterbein University, where he has taught since 1999. Educated at the University of Michigan and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Dr. Mills teaches courses in the history of philosophy, on the philosophy of death, as well a popular course on our philosophical obligations to the non-human world. He has published work in the philosophy of language, on the pedagogy of philosophy, and on philosophical themes in Downton Abbey and Harry Potter. His essay, "What's So Good About a College Education" has been used at colleges and universities across the country to introduce students to the value of a liberal arts education.

Jessica Garrett Mills, Ph.D., the owner of OnTrack Academic Coaching, works with students from middle school to graduate school helping them navigate executive functioning challenges. She is a native of Bexley who has been vegan since the 90s. She is a vegan activist, a mentor with Vegan Outreach, a vegan cooking class instructor, and, together with Andrew, is raising two young children on a vegan diet and a lifestyle of care and concern for animals and the environment. Jessica's approach to introducing others to a plant-based diet is to listen deeply, to meet people where they are, and to lead with delicious food!

About the branch

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
