It’s been a whirlwind since Publication Day of Think Like a Vegan (“TLAV“). Here’s a roundup of everything Eva and I have been up to and a call to action for you at the end!
You know you always wanted to visit the Highlands in Scotland and now is a great opportunity if you’re in the UK or are otherwise able to travel. The village of Nairn on the northeast coast of the Highlands goes all out for the Nairn Book & Arts Festival. I’ll be there on 9 September at 16.00
We got crunchy at the Timber Festival in the National Forest on 4 July, on the main stage, talking about Costing the Earth with amazing folks from the University of Cumbria and The Lifescape Project. It was a great panel with some terrific questions from the audience
Eva and I were on Clubhouse on 23 June at 20.00 in the Vegan Wednesday Club with author Benny Malone (How to Argue with Vegans) and artist Louise Mead. This was a live event and was not recorded. It was lots of fun and we loved interacting with others in real time
I was on the BBC’s Sunday Sequence program with the fab Audrey Carville
The Bloody Vegans podcast had us around and it was a blast with Jim Moore, the fantastic host
We had a lively and brilliant time with the ace Laura Callan on Instagram Live with Brightzine
Eva and I had a very interesting and stimulating discussion with documentarian James Connolly from the Sustainable Dish podcast. Listen to it here
I had alot of fun talking about more than just TLAV on Emma Osborne’s, founder of Citizen Kind, series on Working Your Values. It’s a fabulous series with some remarkable guests and you should have a look at all of them on her site. Honoured to take part!
Thank you to all of our hosts!!
This we didn’t expect at all! We’re in Closer Magazine in a piece about honey.
You’ll find TLAV in the Guardian’s Ethical Eating Season
We were interviewed by Edward Sylvan of Authority Magazine for his series on Social Impact Authors: How & Why Emilia A Leese & Eva J Charalambides of ‘Think Like a Vegan’ Are Helping To Change Our World and we also made a special “Five things we wished we knew” video for that interview
Female First, an online magazine, published our Seven things everyone can learn from vegan ethics
Green Queen, an award-winning sustainability & impact media platform advocating for social & environmental change in Asia, featured an excerpt from TLAV and lists our book as one of the 4 Books Can Help Us Rethink Our Relationship With Stuff And Become More Sustainable
Brightzine, an ethical lifestyle magazine, published a Q&A with Eva and me
Writing, Ireland’s magazine for writers, published our piece about balancing passion and persuasion
The Pigeonhole, an international online book club, featured TLAV and we had fantastic real-time interaction with pre-launch readears
It was pretty exciting walking up to The Nairn Bookshop and seeing TLAV in the window. I couldn’t help doing a little dance!
Because of the current situation and because I’m in the UK and Eva is in Canada, signed copies are rare. They’re only available at the Nairn Book Shop, signed by me, or from the publisher, Unbound, who has the even rarer ones – copies signed by both of us!
There will be more events, print and interviews in the coming months and I’ll update this post as we go.
