Upcoming CARA Events
Cleveland Vegan Book ClubWhen: Wed, December 18th from 6:00 - 8:00pmWhere: Visible Voice Books (in Tremont) Upstairs, 1023 Kenilworth Ave
For our next book club meeting we'll be discussing the international best-selling book, "The World Peace Diet: Eating For Spiritual Health and Social Harmony" by Will Tuttle PhD.
The World Peace Diet offers a compelling and liberating new understanding of our food and our culture. It has been called one of the most important books of the 21st century: the foundation of a new society based on the truth of the interconnectedness of all life. It is the first book to make explicit the invisible connections between our culture, our food, and the source of our broad range of problems — and the way to a positive transformation in our individual and collective lives. The World Peace Diet is a profound book that helps us to understand the big picture of our culture and why we have the unyielding dilemmas we face, and how we can solve them.

CARA's book club meetings take place every other month at Visible Voice Books in Tremont. We feature books on various aspects of veganism including health, ethics, environmental issues, social justice, etc. Visible Voice Books has a wine and coffee bar so drinks are available for purchase and they permit food to be brought into their meeting room. Join us for some consciousness-raising discussion and a great opportunity to network with others who care about animals, the earth and healthy eating!

In this highly acclaimed film, Eddie Lama explains how he feared and avoided animals for most of his life, until the love of a kitten opened his heart, inspiring him to rescue abandoned animals and bring his message of compassion to the streets of New York. With humor and sincerity, Eddie tells the story of his remarkable change in consciousness.
The Los Angeles Times calls The Witness "the most important and persuasive film about animals ever made."
The Witness has won 10 film festival awards and is currently available in 12 languages.
"The Witness packs all the dramatic punch of an epic Hollywood feature... Deceptively simple, the film works on many levels, providing such easy and deep access to 'animal consciousness' that it ranks among the most effective cinematic tools for social change to date." ~ Satya Magazine

PEACEABLE KINGDOM: THE JOURNEY HOME
A riveting story of transformation and healing, Peaceable Kingdom explores the awakening conscience of several people who grew up in traditional farming culture and who have now come to question the basic assumptions of their way of life.
With strikingly honest interviews and rare footage demonstrating the emotional lives and intense family bonds of animals most often viewed as living commodities, this groundbreaking documentary shatters stereotypical notions of farmers, farm life, and perhaps most surprisingly, farm animals themselves.
“Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home truly is a journey of inspiration; a journey to an enlightened consciousness.” — Elizabeth English, Founder Moondance International Film Festival
