VegNews Magazine Names Mercy For Animals Book of the Year

If you’re vegan, odds are you’ve heard of (and voted in) the Veggie Awards. Every year VegNews magazine gives its readers the opportunity to vote for the best of the best in all things vegan through the Veggie Awards.

I mean, it’s a pretty big deal. It is the biggest annual survey of everything vegan-friendly and features a range of categories, including celebrities, products, restaurants, and sanctuaries. Last year VegNews reported that a record-breaking 1.7 million votes were cast in the 2016 poll.

Well, the results of the 2017 Veggie Awards have just been announced, and Mercy For Animals has been named “Book of the Year!

Released in September, the memoir by Mercy For Animals founder and president Nathan Runkle details the story of MFA’s early days in grassroots activism, Nathan’s dramatic experiences of going undercover at factory farms and slaughterhouses, and much more.

VegNews explains:
We’ve grown to expect big things from vegan wunderkind Nathan Runkle. Raised on an Ohio farm, he launched his activist career while still in high school, founding Mercy For Animals—now lauded as one of the world’s most influential animal-rights organizations—at just 15.
But this isn’t just Nathan’s story. This inspiring book examines how, as an organization, MFA has worked to create a better world for farmed animals—from our groundbreaking undercover investigations, which have led to landmark criminal prosecutions of animal abusers, to our creative and effective global grassroots advocacy.
