Book signing – Vegan Girl’s Guide to Life:

“Hello!

Manchester Vegan Society and Mod’s Veggie/Vegan Cafe at the Thirsty Scholar, 50 New Wakefield Street (just off Oxford Road), City Centre Manchester, M1 are hosting a book signing by Melisser Elliott the Urban housewife of her new book – The Vegan girl’s guide to life on Tuesday 30th November 2010 from 6pm to 8pm at the Thirsty Scholar.

The book would make a great Christmas prezzie (especially a signed copy) and vegan food will be available throughout the event.

Please come along as we’d like to show Melisser that there are many committed and enthusiastic vegans here in the North.

The Thirsty Scholar is literally 2 minutes from Oxford Road Railway Station which all trains from Liverpool stop at!

For anyone wishing to make an evening of it there is music after the event!
Look forward to seeing you!”
