Natalie Slater’s Bake and Destroy: Good Food for Bad Vegans isn’t your traditional cookbook. “I wanted to inspire people to try new things in the kitchen with a no-holds-barred approach,” Slater writes in the introduction. 

The book is broken up into six chapters with simple titles like “Sweets & Treats” and “Party Hard Entrées.” Slater — who looks more like a Suicide Girl than Martha Stewart — drops vegan recipes for such delicious-sounding creations as Banana Bread French Toast Cupcakes and Green Bean Casserole Pizza. 

There’s also stuff called Cannibal Corpse Crock-Pot and Spaghetti Cake with Grandma Sharon’s Hater-Proof Sauce. Slater discusses these curious concoctions at Joseph-Beth. 

7 p.m. Free. Joseph-Beth Booksellers, 2692 Madison Road, Rookwood Pavilion, Norwood, 513-396-8960, josephbeth.com
