Looking for one more summer read? Check out Jasmin Singer's memoir "Always Too Much and Never Enough" and come join us at Patriots Park in Downers Grove to spend the afternoon talking about the book with Vegan in the Burbs!
We'll meet in the eastern parking lot of Patriots Park and find a spot among the beautiful scenery to sprawl out. There are several picnic benches and lots of open grassy areas, so please bring a lawn chair or blanket for yourself. Vegan snacks are always welcome! If the forecast forces us indoors, we'll relocate to a nearby location and will update this accordingly.
After viewing the documentary "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead," Jasmin embarks on a life-altering journey of juice fasting. You may recognize her name from the podcast and non-profit "Our Hen House" or her Ted Talk, "Compassion Unlocks Identity." More about the book and author below.

It’s available on Amazon, possibly at your local library, or maybe a local Half Price Books.
From the publisher:
One woman’s journey to find herself through juicing, veganism, and love, as she went from fat to thin and from feeding her emotions to feeding her soul. From the extra pounds and unrelenting bullies that left her eating lunch alone in a bathroom stall at school to the low self-esteem that left her both physically and emotionally vulnerable to abuse, Jasmin Singer’s struggle with weight defined her life.
