Vegan author Ibram X Kendi has a new book out called **[Stamped from the Beginning: A Graphic History of Racist Ideas in America](https://www.amazon.com/Stamped-Beginning-Graphic-History-America/dp/1984859439/ref=sr_1_1?crid=Y3EPNG48YW8&keywords=Stamped+from+the+Beginning%3A+A+Graphic+History+of+Racist+Ideas+in+America&qid=1687698979&sprefix=stamped+from+the+beginning+a+graphic+history+of+racist+ideas+in+america%2Caps%2C146&sr=8-1),** adapted from his previously published book of the same name.

Before the event, I thought it might be fun to meetup at the amazing vegan restaurant **ION (606 Main Street, Middletwon, CT)** with anyone who plans to go. We’ll grab an early dinner then head over to Wesleyan which is a few blocks away (walk or drive).
RSVP for this Meetup if you plan to come to dinner so I can get an idea of headcount. Dinner is at 5:00 and the event is at 7:00 p.m.
