With Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina, I'm co-author of a new book titled Becoming Raw: The Essential Guide to Raw Vegan Diets. My contribution to the book was to write a concise history of the rawfood movement in America from the early 19th century to the present. [It's the first narrative history of the rawfood movement in the US. ] To your meet-up group, I would be speaking about the leaders of the raw foods movement. The title of my talk is Return to the Edenic Diet: A History of the Raw Food Movement in America with emphasis on New York leaders. This movement,as I said, dates back to the early 19th century and includes such figures as: Sylvester Graham, Herbert Shellton, Arnold Ehret (author of The Mucusless Diet Healing System); Vera Richter (founder of the first raw food restaurant in the U.S. and author of the first raw food un-cookbook); Gaylord Hauser (Hollywood Nutritionist); Norman Walker (inventor of the Norwalk Juicer); Paul and Patricia Bragg (inventors of Braggs Liquid Aminos); "Gypsy Boots" (founder of the Hollywood Health Hut); George and Doris Fathman (authors of Live Foods, the first vegan gourmet uncookbook); David Wolfe (author of Nature's First Law, etc.) Gabriel Cousens (author of Conscious Eating, and David Klein (publisher of Vibrance Magazine)., et al. . I will have copies of Becoming Raw and other of my books to sell to the attendees. Best regards,
