Paul Krause & Susan Kline work as a duo in presenting information on the vegan lifestyle.
Paul Krause, President of VegMichigan, will talk about the advantages of a plant-based lifestyle as it relates to health, environment and the ethical consequences. He is also a pharmacist and owner of The Medicine Cabinet Pharmacy in Southfield. He has been a vegan for many years and brings a wealth of knowledge in the medical field as well as information regarding the vegan lifestyle.
Susan Kline will be featuring a cooking demonstration. Susan has a B.A. in Sociology; is a VegMichigan board member and cookbook author. She has been a vegan for 20 years and a cooking class instructor for 11 years. In her cookbook, From the Earth With Love, Susan set out to re-create traditional recipes, using vegan options. Her goal is to dispel the myth that vegan food is unappetizing and limited but rather delicious and abundant.
We invite you to come and enjoy this fun and informative class. You will sample food prepared in class and receive literature and recipes to take home.

This multi-award winning documentary by Liz Marshall illuminates the lives of individual animals living within and rescued from the machine of our modern world. Through the heart and photographic lens of acclaimed photographer Jo-Anne McArthur, we become intimately familiar with a cast of non-human animals. The film follows Jo-Anne over the course of a year as she photographs several animal stories in Canada, the U.S., and Europe. Each story is a window into global animal industries: Food, Fashion, Entertainment and Research.
