Saturday book feature — The Book of She — Michelle Meyer


She said to her vegan granddaughter—

I remember when you could make a meatloaf
without being accused of ruining the planet.

She expected a smart aleck reply. Or a lecture
about how meat is dead. Or a list of all the species
that had gone extinct since 1970.

She expected to be blamed, cursed, maybe even
mocked. But the brown-eyed girl just handed her
a cookie and said—

I’m sorry, I’m not your granddaughter.
