The Vegan Girl's Guide to Life! Out now, signings everywhere!

It seems like every day the vegan community grows exponentially. And a big part of that growth is a proliferation of amazing vegan cookbooks! Just this week a new book has been released: The Vegan Girl's Guide to Life. But this is no ordinary cookbook. In fact it can hardly be called a cookbook at all, though I hear it does have some kickass recipes. So what is it? Well:

"The Vegan Girl's Guide to Life contains the basic who-what-where-when-why of veganism, but also has tips like what to feed non-vegans, the best vegan beauty products, fun vacation spots, and an assortment of recipes and crafty projects including Jackfruit "Carnitas" Tacos, Twice Baked Chipotle Sweet Potatoes, Cracked Coriander Seed and Chai Tea-Rubbed Vegan Steak Lo Mein, Double Chocolate Cookies, Purple Cow Cupcakes, DIY Dessert Stands, a Cross Stitch pattern by Stitch'd Ink, and how to make your own produce bags.

Reading like a Who's Who of vegan women, contributions from recipes to craft projects are contributed by respected vegan chefs and bloggers including Hannah Kaminsky, Celine Steen, Jenn Shagrin, Kittee Berns, Kelly Peloza and more."

And there you have it. Writer and editor Melisser Eliott is currently trotting the globe sharing the book with anyone and everyone - don't you want to meet her? The schedule of signing events currently looks like this, but you can always stop by the Urban Housewife blog for updates:
