About Keith Akers

I’m a writer and activist, married to Kate Lawrence, and now living in Denver, Colorado, U. S. A.

I’ve published three books, DISCIPLES (Apocryphile Press, 2013), THE LOST RELIGION OF JESUS (Lantern Books, 2000), and A VEGETARIAN SOURCEBOOK (G. P. Putnam’s Sons, 1983). Currently, I am working on a book on the environmental crisis tentatively titled EMBRACING LIMITS. I’ve also been published in VegNews, Vegetarian Times, and other vegetarian and vegan publications.

I’ve been involved with various vegetarian or vegan groups for the past four decades, including the Vegetarian Society of D. C. (where I served as President), the Vegetarian Society of Colorado (where I also served as President), and the International Vegetarian Union (where I served as Regional Secretary for North America).  Currently I’m a co-organizer of the Meetup group Denver Vegans.

The quickest way to find out more about me is to take a look at this web site and my books. If you’re local to Denver, visit us at the Denver Vegans where you’ll probably run into me at some point. If you’re not local, send me an e-mail (see below), drop me a card, or comment on something on my blog that interests you.  Stay in touch.
