Announcing a new Meetup for Vegetarian & Vegan Meetup of Raleigh, Durham & Chapel Hill!
What: Book Club Meetup - Thanking the Monkey
When: March 7,[masked]:00 PM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
Meetup Description: It's time to schedule our 2nd 'somehow veg-related' book club meetup! Our last book discussion was quite successful. This time we'll be reading a less intimidating tome - Thanking the Monkey: Rethinking the Way We Treat Animals by Karen Dawn. It won our poll by a landslide. Please continue to vote on the poll if you haven't already and feel free to keep sending me book suggestions!
Unless someone else offers up their (possibly larger) home, then we can squeeze into my living room again. (please email me if you might like to host!) I live in Durham not too far from 85 and Guess Rd - exact address will be sent to those attending right before the event. We did a Sunday last time, so I am scheduling a Saturday afternoon this time. Since there is very limited space, any +1 should also be a member of our meetup - please post who it is. Also, please consider your RSVP carefully - a last minute change to no may prevent someone else from attending since they haven't time to read the book.
Feel free to bring vegan munchies or drinks for snacking during our discussion! As always, contact me with any questions!
