Julie Powell at KQED reading from her book Cleaving - A Story of Marriage, Meat, and Obsession

Julie Powell visited KQED’s The Writers’ Block to record a reading from her latest book, Cleaving: A Story of Marriage, Meat, and Obsession. She was open to participating in a video interview and shared her thoughts about the importance of transparency in the process of transforming animals into meat; how the fame she received from Julie and Julia affected her career path and personal life; revealed some themes for her next fiction novel and showed us her tattoo.
