Food Writer Becomes A Butcher To Learn The Value Of Meat

Is it possible to slaughter animals and eat meat in an an ethical way? That's the question Camas Davis set out to answer when she moved to the southwest of France to apprentice as a butcher on a small, family-run farm and slaughterhouse. She then founded the Portland Meat Collective to teach people about conscientious farming, slaughtering, and eating. Her new book is 'Killing It.'

Also, book critic Maureen Corrigan reviews the novel 'Give Me Your Hand' by Megan Abbott, and rock critic Ken Tucker reviews Lori McKenna's album 'The Tree.'
