This group brings together avid readers once a month for a vegan food potluck and discussion of a prize-winning fictional novel. You don't need to be a vegan to join, and, no, the books are not vegan-based! This is not a political group, just a group of smart people who like to discuss books over good food. We incorporate a wide variety of genres, from science fiction to classics to comedy to metafiction--we strive for diversity in our literary selections! Interested persons should note, however, that this is a fiction group; we do not read biographies or poetry or investigative journalism or other forms of non-fiction. 

I do not charge a fee for this book club to cover organizer fees--something many groups do. However, there is the option of donating $2 to $5 at each meet-up you attend. This money is then donated to an organization like the Sierra Club or the National Resources Defense Council in the group's name. It's a small positive action this group can make. These small actions can add up. This is entirely voluntary and not at all required. Just coming and bringing yourself, a tasty dish to share, and good conversation will always be enough, but if you want to donate please feel free to do so.

Not all members are vegan and people do occasionally bring dishes with dairy or honey--just please be sure to note it so that members who may have allergies or who are strictly vegan are aware of this. Also, I am gluten-free and always appreciate gluten-free dishes! But that's not at all a requirement of the potluck. 

I want this meetup to be an active group with regular attendees. Because of this, the group has a two strikes rule. If you RSVP and don't show to two events without canceling your RSVP, you will be removed. Also, I believe it is better to have a smaller group of active members than a huge list of inactive members and have decided to cap membership at 100. If you have been inactive for over six months you might be removed to make room for other more active members. You can always rejoin later if you like.
