Welcome to the Encore Vegan Book Club! We meet every Tuesday evening except the last Tuesday of each calendar month at Gaia's Garden at the community table in the back. We have optional social time from 6:00-7:00 p.m. followed by our book discussion from 7:00-8:00.

We're currently reading The Plant-Based Solution: America's Healthy Heart Doc's Plan to Power Your Health by leading cardiologist and vegan restauranteur Joel K. Kahn, M.D.

Everyone is welcome at our book discussions, including vegans, veg-curious omnivores, and anyone in between. We can all learn from each other as we talk about vegan-friendly books--even if we approach them from different perspectives.

Our optional social time is a good time to get to know each other better, to talk about our unique food and lifestyle journeys, and to just have fun together! Please feel free to join us for the social hour whether or not you choose to stay for the book discussion.

Please also feel free to come to the book discussion even if you haven't done the reading for the week. We readers will share enough about the subject matter that you will likely find it easy to participate meaningfully. You're also welcome to just listen if you prefer.

Gaia's Garden always accommodates our group with great generosity, grace, and humor. So let's each do our best to honor the restaurant's policy of a $5.00 minimum purchase per person. Please feel free to order and eat during the social hour or the book discussion or both. Out of respect for Gaia's Garden's wonderful hospitality, please refrain from bringing in outside food or beverages for consumption while inside the restaurant.

We look forward to seeing you and to learning together!
