Let’s make some noise for the Sistah Vegan anthology! February 23, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — johanna @ 3:18 pm

Hey folks — I hope you’ve all checked out the videos Breeze posted a few days ago about Sistah Vegan: Black Female Vegans Speak on Food, Identity, Health, and Society (which comes out very soon, in March!).

There are also two upcoming Sistah Vegan appearances:

April 10, 2010: GreenFest San Francisco
May 20, 7:30PM: Berkeley, CA at Pegasus Books

Readers of this blog & the Sistah Vegan blog will have already seen Breeze’s thoughtful & powerful posts. This anthology is sure to be full of more of the same — & will definitely provide a perspective that is much-needed but sadly too often absent from vegan circles.

I’m sure Breeze would love to hear about other places that might like to host a book release party for her (which should be everywhere, really). Ideas?

And online? Does anyone want to do a reading group for the book? Maybe posts here with quotes/points for discussion (sorta kinda like this post, which I found useful even before I read the book)? Or maybe you all could do that on your blogs too!

(Sadly due to extreme penny-pinching at the moment I don’t anticipate being able to get my hands on the book as soon as it comes out & so would be unlikely to start a timely discussion here — but maybe one of the other bloggers here might? & I hope to see discussions sprouting up elsewhere too.)

I am really excited about this book & I know a lot of you are too — I’m hoping the anthology gets the attention & consideration it deserves.

    How about at La Pena in Berkeley? They just had a pretty cool event with Bryant Terry.

    • Excellent idea. I drove by them today and was wondering about the place! Seriously! I remember thinking, “Cultural Center? What’s this place all about?” And then I forgot to Google it when I got home. Thanks for reminding me!
