Calling all veggies and friends of animals with dusty, crowded book shelves! Please join us for an evening swap of inspiring vegan cookbooks, theory books, how-to dvds, and all other media related to vegetarianism and animal rights. This event is open to all whether you are a hardcore vegan with a dozen books (and tattoos) or a veg-curious passerby.
There will be a raffle in support of Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. (Prizes include a gift certificate to Sustainable NYC!) All books remaining after the swap will be donated to the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe.
As if scoring free books, helping rescued animals, and supporting New Yorkers living with AIDS isn't enough, we'll have lots of delicious flavors of Lula's Sweet Apothecary vegan ice cream for sale in the cafe and a 10% discount on all items in the shop during the event!
For more info or to contribute a prize to the raffle, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
(RSVP via Facebook)
Update: Thanks to all twenty-or-so of you who came, chatted, swapped, bought raffle tickets, and threw a few bucks in the donation jar. We collected $62 and my sweet boyfriend made a matching donation, so we raised at total of $124 for Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary! I'm also enjoying the Teany Book I picked up. (I promise to share it or something equally awesome at the next swap.)
