***
Dario and his wife Lina raise their son in the spirit of animal respect and they have excluded meat from his menu. This book is a letter from a loving father to his son about the importance of everyday choices and an explanation of such principles of child upbringing. As a vegetarian of over 20 years, Martinelli does not separate animals we love from animals we eat, but he is not fanatic and does not condemn meat eaters.
An extract of the book will be read, followed by discussion concerning the topics covered in the book. The discussion will allow to look at vegetarianism from different points of view: moral, philosophical, as well as merely the choice of nutrition. The audience will also be able to listen to some live music. 
The event will be held in English.
During the event the publishing house “Kitos knygos” will sell “Letters to the Vegetarian Son” with a discount.
