Skinny Bitch's Rory Freedman on Beg and her reading tonight

Most fans will know author Rory Freedman as co-author of the best-selling Skinny Bitch, a lifestyle book disguised as a diet book. Now she's back to expand on her philosophy about animals in Beg: A Radical New Way of Regarding Animals. And to some people, it will seem radical.

We talked to Freedman -- who'll be at the Tattered Cover, 2526 East Colfax Avenue, to read from Beg at 7:30 p.m. tonight -- about the different tone of Beg (she's given up swear words!), the Beg for Change challenge and how she's shaped her lifestyle to match her feelings about animals.
