Hi everyone!


I wanted to let you know that I've been hard at work scheduling some really amazing events for Montclair Vegans! I'm still confirming dates and venues. If you have happen to have a connection to a venue that will let us host any of these events, please let me know. I'd like to keep the events local, preferably in one of Montclair's downtown areas, so that they're easy for people to get to. I'd also like to keep everything free to the public (except for film screenings), so that we can spread the vegan message. 


In most cases, we have to pay a speaker fee or make a donation to the speaker's organization, and some venues charge a fee as well. Proceeds from our bake sale at Go Lightly on September 17th will go towards paying for these events, so please help out! If you can donate baked goods, please sign up here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Au4V3UqjLDbadFUxZGlhMjlWSGVTRS0tZlhnRkFZS1E&hl=en_US


Here's what's going on:

  • In October Compassionate Cooks' Colleen Patrick-Goudreau will be coming to Montclair to talk about her new book Thirty Day Vegan Challenge.
  • Terry Hope Romero of Veganomicon fame will also be stopping by in October to do a signing for her new book Vegan Pie in the Sky
  • In November Jasmin Singer and Mariann Sullivan from Our Hen House will doing a talk called "Let the Donut do the Talking", which will be about activism through food. Jasmin is an excellent speaker so you won't want to miss her!
  • Cookbook author Nava Atlas will also be visiting Montclair in November. She'll talk about vegan meals for the holidays and she'll also be signing her new book Vegan Holiday Kitchen.
  • In February we will be hosting a screening of the new film Vegucated.
  • Gene Baur enjoyed his visit to Montclair so much that he will be returning in either February or March.
  • Victoria Moran, author of Fit From Within, The Love Powered Diet and Living a Charmed Life will be here to talk about her new book Real World Vegan in June. Victoria is an amazing speaker and I can guarantee that everyone will love her!


Don't forget about Farm Sanctuary's Walk for Farm Animals on October 23rd. The Montclair Vegans Team is currently in 4th place in fundraising. Sign up for the walk and join the team here: http://events.walkforfarmanimals.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.eventDetails&eventID=511  Make sure you chose "join an existing team" and pick Montclair Vegans from the pull down menu.


I hope to see you soon!
