I love reading. Reading is the source of our knowledge and ignorance. As you may know true knowledge is absolute, but human knowledge is relative and ignorance is not bliss. As humans we need to read in order to learn, to raise consciousness and understand our world. Are you a book and reading lover ? Litterature and knowledge inspire us and helps us to understand, to create, to relax, to escape, to explore. Vegetarian and vegan culture is full of wonderful interesting amazing books. You like to read and want to educate yourself about vegetarianism and veganism ?
I suggest to organize a recurrent meetup to discover and discuss about one or several books relating to veganism. No Cookbooks in this meetup but litterature relating to veganism.
Veganism is about more than food and diet : it's a lifestyle !
Discussion Topics of those books could be about : wellness, health, nutrition, fiction or science-fiction, novels with friendly veggie and vegan themes, animal rights and advocacy, social justice, art, history, philosophy, psychology, sociology, spirituality, meditation, politics, organic agriculture, environment, sustainable green living projects and green issues.
Every month with your help I will suggest a list of books to read and you will choose at least two books to read. I am always opened to the suggestions. Then I will organize a meetup in a nice Café/Lounge Tea/Restaurant or a potluck Tea Party and we will discuss about those books. Besides the fact that it will be a great opportunity to meet fellow veggies and vegans, It also will be a peaceful and fun moment to share your thoughts and ideas, critical views about the author and the book. Anyone interested can attend to this meetup. The only condition to attend to this meetup will be the necessity to play the only rule. READ THE BOOKS of course ! :)
The book to read and to review can be in french or in english.
We did a first meetup on Sunday February 24th at Cafe Ginger in order to know what books we could read.
There's so many interesting books but we need to choose at the end. Finally the first books we're going to read for the next vegan book club discussion are :
Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs and Wear Cows by Melanie Joy Ph.D
The World Peace Diet : Eating for Spiritual Health and Social Harmony by Will Tuttle Ph.D
You can read the two books I suggested if you're a quick reader, or a geek and if you like challenges. Otherwise the reading of Only one book will be enough to attend to this meetup.
Are you Ready to Read ! It Starts now !
Challenge yourself and Let's share vegan culture !
