About the Book: Vegan Freak is a book by Bob Torres and Jenna Torres.

“In this informative and practical guide, two seasoned vegans offer tips and advice for thriving without animal by-products. Sometimes funny and irreverent yet always aware of its serious message, this resource for being vegan in a world that doesn’t always understand or have sympathy for the lifestyle illustrates how to go vegan in three weeks or less by employing a “cold tofu method;” convince family, friends, and others that there is no such thing as a vegan cult; and survive restaurants, grocery stores, and meals with omnivores. Also offering answers to questions such as “Do you, like, live on apples and twigs?” this reference dispels myths and explains the arguments for ethical, abolitionist veganism, encouraging everyone to embrace their inner vegan.”

How does it work?

Every fortnight for 4 meetings from the 24th October, the Book-Club will meet to discuss part of Vegan Freaks. Participants will have read a selected part prior to each meeting. Everyone will have an opportunity to discuss and ask questions about the book. Further discussion is available on the Book Club’s online email forum.

It is essential that everyone participating obtain a copy of Vegan Freak. Vegan Ireland will have copies at the Book-Club. A Book Club meeting will take place next Tues 9th and Wed, 10th Oct.
