VSDC Book Club discusses The Underground Railroad
Please join the Vegetarian Society of DC Book Club discussion of Colson Whitehead's The Underground Railroad. New York Times 10 Best Books of 2016: “imagines a slave fleeing north on a literal underground railroad — complete with locomotives, boxcars and conductors." Winner of the National Book Award in fiction. To participate you must read at least half the book -- and RSVP at least two days before the meeting. This meeting takes place at Vegaritos, a vegan burrito restaurant in Takoma Park. Vegaritos closes at 8pm but will let us stay until 9pm for our discussion. The VSDC Book Club reads fiction and nonfiction in alternating months, about any topic. We usually meet the last Wednesday of the month at a vegetarian restaurant in DC or nearby Maryland or Virginia. For more information (including everything we have read over 26 years!) visit or contact Beth through meet up ( Don't be a no show! If your plans change, update your RSVP.

What we're about

The Washington DC Area Vegan Meetup Group

Engage with other vegans (and those aspiring) in the DC metropolitan area. Share ideas/thoughts on being or going vegan including recipes, vegan products, activities, restaurants, related topics, its philosophy, or simply make friends who share your interests.

The group is sponsored by the Veg Society of DC (VSDC, ), who provides the enabling structure and pays the regular Meetup fee so that individual members of the group do not have to pay anything. A number of the group's activities will be organized by VSDC (whose events are always planned vegan).

Activities will be community-building to support those already on the path to an all-plant vegan diet, as well as educational, to provide people with the information and insight to take the next step or become more involved. As part of VSDC's philosophy for positive encouragement and inclusiveness, everyone is welcome to attend, regardless of background and where they are on the path to a vegan diet and lifestyle.

All events will be vegan.
