Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days

The Princeton Public Library is hosting a screening of "Gabriel Cousens' Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days." It will be at 2:00 on April 9th in the community room. Lana Jay Spencer, who is the co-founder for Living Suppers in Princeton, will lead a discussion on the raw vegan lifestyle and they'll be whipping up an assortment of green smoothies after the screening.

There is no charge, but they'll happily accept it if people chip in to help pay for the smoothie ingredients.
