Join us for an evening of food, original music, and a lecture on Dr. Will Tuttle’s acclaimed best-seller, The World Peace Diet.

The potluck begins at 5pm, followed by Northwest VEG's brief annual meeting. The evening will feature Dr. Tuttle as guest speaker and concert pianist, with guest artists Madeleine on flute and Daniel Redwood on guitar with original compositions.

The World Peace Diet is published in 16 languages, and Dr. Tuttle has lectured and performed widely throughout North America and worldwide. A featured expert in Cowspiracy and other documentary films, his doctorate degree from U.C., Berkeley, focused on educating intuition and altruism, and he has taught college courses in creativity, comparative religion, and philosophy. He’s a recipient of the prestigious Courage of Conscience Award and is a former Zen monk and Dharma Master in the Zen tradition. Editor of Circles of Compassion: Connecting Issues of Justice, and creator of 7 much-loved CD albums of original piano music, he’s noted for clear and inspiring presentations that often include his music as well as evocative animal paintings by his spouse, Madeleine, a visionary artist from Switzerland.
