6-9pm, Sustainable NYC, 139 Avenue A (btw St. Marks & 9th St), New York, NY 10009
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: email@example.com
(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.)

Get Dirty NYC! is a newly-formed non profit whose mission is to connect New Yorkers to gardening and farming opportunities around the city. We've created a one-stop virtual meeting place for volunteers to find hands-on projects, and for farms and gardens to find the help they need. Please visit www.getdirtynyc.org if you're interested in volunteering or if you'd like to list your farm or garden project." (P.S. Follow @getdirtynyc on Twitter for up-to-the-minute announcements of gardening opportunities.)
