Author Abandons Meat

Margaret Atwood becomes a pescetarian to promote new book, raise money for birds.

Earlier this month Margaret Atwood embarked on a promotional tour for her newest book, The Year of the Flood. The seven-country tour found Atwood displaced from both her home and her normal diet. Having taken a "veggie vow" with friends, Canada's famed writer has chosen to abstain from red meat and poultry for the duration of her tour. Her other diet alteration has changed the way she starts her mornings—Atwood will only be drinking shade-grown, bird-friendly, organic coffee. Atwood documents her semi-veg transformation in her official tour blog. Along with promoting her novel, Atwood is using the tour as an outlet to raise money for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.
