New Event: Alex Lockwood @Village Books!


Hi Everyone! I know it's been awhile since I have posted anything, but I wanted to give you all a heads up about an upcoming event that may be of interest to you. On Monday, July 18 @7pm, Village Books is hosting vegan writer, scholar, and runner, Alex Lockwood, who recently published a book called The Pig in Thin Air. He  is here visiting from the UK  and will be in Bellingham as part of his book tour. He will read from and talk about his book, and he also invited me to be part of the discussion after the reading. I am very much looking forward to that, and I hope you will consider joining us for what promises to be a very interesting evening!

Below is more information I have taken from the event post found on the Village Books website, and also here is a link to the FB page event listing: https://www.facebook.com/events/525149637672469 

Please help spread the word to anyone who you think may be interested. Thanks, and see you soon!

"The Pig in Thin Air is part family food memoir, part road trip, and part study of our encounters with animals. Making links between our food habits and environmental crises, the book challenges us to tackle climate change by developing deeper, more compassionate relationships with all animals, including ourselves.
