Do you want to eat more plant-based meals because . . .

it's good for your health?

it's good for the environment?

it's good for animals?

it's delicious?

your son or daughter is vegan and you have no idea what to feed them? 

Whatever your reasons, come to THE VEGAN COOKBOOK CLUB to share great recipes and meet new friends!

Bring one or more vegan cookbooks from the collection of the Duluth Public Library and one or more recipes from the books that you have tried or would like to try. If possible, bring a few copies of the recipe to share. Also bring your questions and discoveries about plant-based cooking and baking.

"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident...were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) names Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt's fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
