On February 13, Cynthia Nevels of the vegan restaurant and food truck Soulgood will kick off the series by hosting a talk on the library’s Facebook page. Nevels created Soulgood—which  specializes in feel-good dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner—to honor her youngest son, Tyler, who passed away due to complications of cystic fibrosis. On February 20, Dallas Public Library will host Tisha Crear of vegan restaurant Recipe Oak Cliff, which is dedicated to addressing food security issues and supporting health food entrepreneurs. Crear will be featured in a pre-recorded cooking demo followed by a live Q&A. And on February 27, Brandon Waller of vegan restaurant Bam’s Vegan will close out the series. Bam’s first started as a pop-up at Dallas Farmers Market, specializing in grab-and-go smoothies and wraps, and recently opened a permanent location.

The series requires online registration for anyone who wants to attend.
