Riddle Me a Riddle

Question for you....

What connects literature, animals and the iPad?


Give up?



OK, well the answer is simple: Animal Writes, the new book club just announced by the vegan dynamo Colleen Patrick-Goudreau! Yes, not content with producing her fortnightly podcast, working on 3 upcoming books, guest lecturing all over creation, publishing everywhere good words are read, and guest column-ing (can we just pretend that's a word?) at VegNews, now she's starting a book club too.

Word has it that she's focusing on the kind of texts she occasionally reads on the podcast - books that examine the relationship we have with animals but which are not necessarily hard-core animal-rights treatise. The first meeting is going to highlight Don LePan's novel, Animals, which is set in a dystopian reality in which some species have become so scarce that 'other' sources of flesh must be found in order to satisfy man's craving for meat....

Anyways, the really neat thing about this book club is that it'll meet in the flesh (pardon the pun) if you happen to live in the San Francisco area and also online for those of us not - yet - so fortunate as to find ourselves in the Bay Area. More details are available at the website

Compassionate Cooks Book Club - Animal Writes

so, without wanting to sound like a complete cliche, go check it out!

Yes, literature and animals...not a bad way to spend an evening!

Perhaps I'll see you there...virtually anyhow! :)

Oh, and if you're wondering how the iPad plays into this - LePan's book is available in e-format through iBooks. Just saying.....

Stay vegan, friends! :)

This is not an advertisement! I just want people to know about your site and what you do!

My new website www.vegam-moms.com is a place for all things wonderful for the body and the Earth. Currently I feel that vegan and vegetarianism is all spread out!

It is my goal to create a simple and single place for blogs, website, products, books etc. that are geared towards sustaining and helping the vegan and vegetarian lifestyle.

I would be honored if my current & future subscribers could get to know you and your work.

I hope you can take a moment and look at the site. Advertise your site and your self!!!

Membership is free.

I just want a common place for all things vegan and veg!

And no, it is not just for moms...I just liked the name.

Thank you,
