Vegansaurus Wins Award

VegNews contributor Laura Beck wins Best Blog Post Web Award.

VegNews columnist and resident sassy lass Laura Hooper Beck's blog, Vegansaurus, was honored with the year's Best Blog Post Web Award from SF Weekly, one of San Francisco's premier arts and culture publications. Beck won for a March 2009 post entitled "Other Avenues! Also, FAT PEOPLE RULE!" The blog entry riffs on misconceptions about veganism and challenges fat hate and stereotypes. Beck describes Vegansaurus as a "definitive/arbitrary" guide to being vegan in the San Francisco Bay Area. She authors a new VegNews Magazine advice column, "Ask Laura," and serves as Webmistress Laura on VegWeb.
