World Vegan Month! It seems an odd choice of months to Americans because of our holiday, which is based around THE ROAST TURKEY, but, it's World Vegan Month, and when all is said and done, America is only a small part of the world!
What exactly is vegan? The World English Dictionary defines the word this way: “a person who refrains from using any animal product whatever for food, clothing, or any other purpose.“
So, say you want to try to eat vegan this month. How do you get started? By coming to the Library and looking for one of these:
