Third Time’s the Charm for Our Favorite Culinary Superstar!
Bryant Terry‘s first visit to Wake Up Weekend was back in 2010, when he was young, hungry, and promoting his second book–the break-out classic–Vegan Soul Kitchen. By the time of his second visit in 2012, he was a bonafide star, complete with Oprah cred, glossies in the New York Times, and a new online TV series, making it all the sweeter that he chose Grand Rapids for the worldwide debut of his celebrated third book, The Inspired Vegan. Now, just two weeks after the release of his highly anticipated fourth book, Afro-Vegan, Bryant will return to the Rap for the third time, with a rep that’s getting too hot to handle. The man has his own car commercial, for crying out loud. But we established that special friendship early on, which is why this red hot Oakland food justice activist was willing to pencil us in between visits to Yale University and The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts in Brooklyn, NY. Come on out on April 24 at 7:30 pm to help us give him a hero’s welcome, learn to cook tofu curry with mustard greens, and get your hot-off-the-press copy of Afro-Vegan signed by the man himself!
