Dating and Partnering for the Cruelty-Free Gal, with Fashion, Makeup & Wedding Tips
In ever-increasing numbers, people around the world are opting for a vegan lifestyle (eating a plant-based diet and eschewing animal products such as leather), and those who do report feeling happy and healthier, with boundless energy and glowing skin among the benefits. But what happens when their love interest unapologetically orders a steak on a date?
Vegan Love offers guidance for women on how to spread the vegan love and bring compassion for all beings into one’s romantic life. Going cruelty-free need not mean alienating potential partners or long-term lovers. Author Maya Gottfried shares her experiences of going vegan and playing the vegan dating game, as well as insights by notable vegan women, both straight and LGBTQ, from various walks of life, including Jane Velez-Mitchell of JaneUnChained.com; Marisa Miller Wolfson of the film Vegucated; Jasmin Singer, author of Always Too Much and Never Enough; and Colleen Patrick-Goudreau of the Food for Thought podcast.
Vegan Love also features a wealth of fun, practical advice about vegan makeup, vegan clothes, and vegan weddings, with a detailed resource guide.
Our Farm: By the Animals of Farm Sanctuary
The creators of Good Dog (Knopf) are back with Our Farm: By the Animals of Farm Sanctuary (Knopf), an exquisite collection of poems and paintings about the real residents of United States farm animal rescue and advocacy organization Farm Sanctuary’s shelters. Readers will meet Maya the cow, J.D. the piglet, Hilda the sheep and a dozen more animals in their own voices through Gottfried’s delightful poetry. Master artist Robert Rahway Zakanitch provides a portrait and pen and ink sketches for each poem that perfectly capture each animal’s unique personality. Their collaboration has created a vibrant portrayal of life on the happiest farm around.

A celebration of dogs and their distinct personalities, in this heart-stealing picture book, Maya Gottfried wonderfully captures their voices in 16 enchanting poems with fine artist Robert Rahway Zakanitch presenting masterful portraits.
Starred Review. "...free-verse poems that present the inner musings of 16 dogs are combined with painterly, full-page portraits. The verses capture distinct canine personalities...."
