“Will Travel for Vegan Food” Book Signing (Free Event!)

July 18, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Join us at Miss Rachel’s Pantry on Saturday (7/18) as Kristin Lajuenesse, first-time author and founder of the award-winning blog, Will Travel for Vegan Food, visits Philadelphia to promote her foodie-inspired travel memoir, “Will Travel for Vegan Food: A Young Woman’s Solo Van-Dwelling Mission to Break Free, Find Food, and Make Love.”

Kristin’s memoir – a story about a nomadic, solo adventure across the U.S. in a van named Gerty – reached #1 on Amazon for solo traveling books the day it was released (April 23rd, 2015.) During her road trip, Kristin ate at over 500 vegan restaurants in the span of 2 years (including Philly’s own Vedge & Grindcore House); driving over 39,000 miles, through 48 states. She lived in a renovated sports van and entirely off of donations.

As Kristin conducts her first-ever nationwide book tour this summer and early fall, she’s planning a 2.0 version of her journey: to go international and dive into vegan food culture in countries outside of the United States.


Come Meet the Author:

Enjoy treats from Miss Rachel’s Pantry while partaking in a group Q&A with Kristin, and a few other special guests.

Kristin will be giving copies of the book away for free! The first 50 people to arrive will get a free copy of ‘Will Travel For Vegan Food!’ (All others will receive a free digital copy of the book if arriving after print copies are gone.)

More About the Author:

In 2011 a then 28-year-old Lajeunesse quit her job, sold or donated almost all of her belongings, hosted a crowdfunding campaign, and moved into a renovated sports van in an effort to eat at and write about every single vegan restaurant in the United States. Lajeunesse completed her 50-state goal in 2014, and along the way developed a passion for nomadic and unconventional living.

Lajeunesse works as an independant business consultant and lifestyle coach who is passionate about marketing and best business practices for ethical entrepreneurs, female entrepreneurship, travel, nomadic living, lifestyle design, and her Will Travel for Vegan Food project and memoir. She is also a founding member of the Vegan Weddings HQ website (formerly Rose Pedals Vegan Weddings) and the Unabridged Addiction podcast.
