DINE WITH LOCAL AUTHORS - LITERARY SALON
THE VERY VEGGIE BOOK CLUB
The Very Veggie Book Club - Every Tuesday Evening
We meet every Tuesday evening at Gaia's Garden at the community table in the back. We have optional social time from 6-7 p.m. followed by our book discussion from 7-8 p.m.
We take turns choosing books.
Everyone is welcome at our book discussions, including vegans, vegetarians, semi-vegetarians, veg-curious omnivores, and everything in between. We can all learn from each other as we talk about various vegan-friendly books--even if we approach them from different perspectives.
Our optional social time before our book discussions is a good time to get to know each other better, to talk about our unique food and lifestyle journeys, and to just have fun together! Please feel free to join us for the social hour whether or not you choose to stay for the book discussion.
Please also feel free to come to the book discussion even if you don't have the book or haven't finished the reading for the week. Those of us who have done the reading will share enough about the subject matter that you will likely find it easy to participate meaningfully in the discussion. You're also welcome to just listen if you prefer.
Gaia's Garden always accommodates our group with great generosity, grace, and humor. So let's each do our best to honor the restaurant's policy of a $5.00 minimum purchase per person. Please also refrain from bringing in outside food or beverages for consumption while inside the restaurant.
We look forward to seeing you and to learning together!
Dine with Local Authors
Gaia's Garden is honored to support local authors. We display and sell signed copies of books which appeal to a range of interests - fiction, technical, memoirs, fantasy, children's books, etc. The collection is organized and distributed by Jeane Slone, whose books, "She Flew Bombers," "She Built Ships" and "She Was an American Spy During WWII": are available at Gaia's Garden. Purchases are cash only, please.
Every other month, we offer "Dine with Local Authors Night." Five or six different authors attend for conversation over a meal, then each reads briefly (5 minutes). In this salon setting, you can find out more about a specific writer and his or her process and become inspired by the cumulative creativity of the group. Reservations are suggested (with dinner purchase only), and you may request a specific author's table if you wish. There is a $5 minimum purchase per person.
The next event will be on Wednesday, June 12, from 6-8:30 p.m.
