“You Can Teach an Old Dog New Tricks”: A Talk with Eric Lindstrom, Author of The Skeptical Vegan and Raising Vegan Kids
June 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Growing up in an all-female Italian household, Eric was nourished to obesity on meat and dairy. Decades later, overnight, Lindstrom became a vegan—on a bet. A bet he still refuses to lose ten years later. This simple change in diet and lifestyle led to a popular blog that led to two book deals, two YouTube shows and, ultimately, a career in animal rights. Eric’s talk inspires anyone, at any age, to make the change to vegan—for human health, the planet, and the animals.
