Filed under: Uncategorized — Dr. Amie "Breeze" Harper @ 10:30 am

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to update folk and let them know that my book,


Sistah Vegan: Food, Identity, Health, and Society: Black Female Vegans Speak is now available for pre-order.

I am very excited about this, as it’s been nearly 4.5 years since its inception.

    Hi Breeze,
    I am not vegan, but a vegetarian, but I would so love to get my hands on your book. I guess I will have to order it over the web though, as it is unlikely that the bookshops in the U.K will stock it.

    Enhorabuena! This is going on my Wish List now!

  7. Athena Says:

    Oh my word! I put in my pre order immediately. I’ve been waiting for this book for almost 2 years now. It helped me to cope when I had not realized that there were other vegans of color…Long story short, I can’t wait to get the book and congratulations!

    Hi Breeze,
    I’ve been anxiously waiting for this, and want to carry it in my vegan store. Can you please send me the publisher contact info?
    I’m guessing you can see my email address to reach me.
    Thanks, and congratulations!!

    Hi Breeze –

    I work at a bookstore that’s interested in ordering your books in bulk straight from Lantern, and when we called them they said we couldn’t pre-order at all and that there was “no due date” for your book. Now I’m sad! I just want to let you know in case there’s something you can do about it.


  12. Katie,

    Strange. I do not know why this is the case, as Kara just wrote me this morning.

    I’ll look into this.


  13. Niki Esko Says:

    I’m excited too.

  14. Erica412 Says:

    Congrats! I would love to read a book like this! I was wondering if you happen to have met any vegan artists in your travels? Im looking for someone to interview in the Bay Area, Ca. If anyone knows anybody, let me know! : )

  15. dawn Says:

    I have been waiting for this for sometime. Thanks for having the confidence and love of veganism and healing one self to write this piece


  16. Maho Says:

    Congratulations, it is a beautiful book! It is very exciting to know this.


  17. Joselle Says:

    Breeze, congratulations. I can’t wait to read the book. I’ve been waiting for it for a long time. I remember finding your site before I ever went vegan and you were a part of my transition and making sense of things. Thank you.

  18. Tessa Says:

    Adding it to my Christmas/Yule list or maybe even birthday if need be. Congrats on your book meh dear.
