Talk & Taste Cookbook Group
Nava Atlas Cookbooks

Calling all Foodies! 

May’s Talk & Taste will be… any cookbook by vegan author Nava Atlas!

Thursday, May 27, 6:30-8:30 pm

Nava Atlas will be the subject of this year’s choose-your-own-adventure style program.  We love Nava and since we can’t have her over in person this year, we thought it would be fun to feature all her books.  So choose any cookbook by Nava Atlas.  Check out her website at https://theveganatlas.com/ and we highly recommend signing up for her email newsletter for the great tips and free recipes she sends out throughout the year.  Try some recipes and come ready to talk about it.  There will be no purchase copy this month, but there are lots of library copies available and some titles are on Overdrive/Libby and Hoopla to download. Please register to receive the GoToMeeting link.
