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.
