A moving collection of poems from over 30 vegan poets from around the world. Even in My Dreams is one of the first anthologies of its kind.
Edited by the founder of the Barefoot Vegan Farm & Animal Sanctuary and Barefoot Vegan Magazine, Emma Letessier, all profits raised by the sale of this book go towards the sanctuary.
This beautiful book allows you to explore the full spectrum of emotions experienced as a vegan. There are poems that speak with joy, sadness, despair, horror, frustration, confusion, triumph, hope, gratitude, humour and sarcasm.
On what she hopes the book will achieve, Emma said:
“I hope that vegan readers will feel inspired and strangely comforted by the confirmation that the feelings they experience as a vegan are not unique, they are not alone. Maybe they’ll find themselves drawn to put pen to paper, encouraged to create art as a vehicle for beautiful activism.
“And for non-vegans, they are offered a vital glimpse of the world through our eyes, a chance to lift the veil, allow themselves to feel our compassion for the suffering of other sentient beings and understand the very tangible consequences of our everyday choices. It’s a deeply moving book and I think it demonstrates the power of art to effect change.”
Great reviews for the book are already coming in:
"A beautiful volume of always touching, sometimes funny, and invariably accessible poems about why animals matter and why vegans stand up for them." - Victoria Moran, author, podcaster, and Academy director: Main Street Vegan.
