Even Vegans Die: A Book for Animal Advocates by Carol J. Adams, Patti Breitman, Virginia Messina, MPH, RD
Available from Lantern Books


lauren Ornelas: Even Vegans Die knocked my socks off with its integrity. I was thrilled to read a book by three powerful women telling it like it is! It is so refreshing and easy to read. It is filled with sobering truth and firm, kindhearted advice reminding us that even our fellow vegans deserve compassion.

Dawn Moncrief: Why is a title as obviously true as Even Vegans Die so provocative? This much-needed book from some of the vegan movement’s most compelling thinkers not only provides insights into this question, it also offers a wide range of practical advice on how to better care for ourselves and our community—and why it’s critically important to do so. Eschewing perfectionism, denial, and blame, the authors present a care-centered lifestyle and model of effective activism based on discerning realism and profound inclusivity. The result is an empowering set of theories and recommendations that embolden people of conscience to create more deliberate lives and more enduring legacies.”
