We will be discussing “Off The Reservation: A Novel” by vegan author Glen Merzer
and a selection from this year’s project book, *Vegan Voices: Essays by Inspiring Changemakers,* ed. *by* Koanne Kong.
This meeting will take place on Zoom, plus an outdoor location (in or near West Hartford, Connecticut) to be announced if the weather is warm enough.
**About the book:**
In a narrative rich in humor and uproarious dialogue, Off the Reservation explores modern presidential politics and whether honesty can find a place within it. Congressman Evan Gorgoni of Bloomington, IN, has served eight terms in a dysfunctional Congress and reached his limits of frustration. A medical event brings on the epiphany that there is no point in continuing to serve. But his frank expression, on Meet the Press, of his rationale for ending his political career is met with the unbidden call that he seek the White House—an unlikely destination for a vegan Congressman with a disdain for political posturing. If he’s going to do it, he’s going to do it as no one has done it before … Featuring 20 vegan recipes and a solution to America’s Electoral College problem, Off the Reservation is an original take on the art of the possible.
Hope to see you then!
