ABOUT RUBY ROTH
A LEADER IN THE VEGAN MOVEMENT
Featured on CNN, FOX,Today, and other major media, Ruby Roth’s work transcends mere food philosophy to encompass the personal agency of people—big and small—in creating a sound and more sustainable world.
Vegan since 2003, Ruby was teaching art at an elementary school when her students' fascination with her eating habits inspired her to write That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals in 2009—the first non-fiction book in children’s literature to address the emotional lives of animals, factory farming, the environment, and endangered species. Vegan Is Love, V Is for Vegan, and The Help Yourself Cookbook for Kids followed, paving the way for the next generation’s evolution and leadership skills. Ruby’s newest title, Bad Day, broadens her themes to include emotional wellness, helping children discover a holistic approach to optimal, healthy living. Connecting the dots between our personal choices and the public realm, Ruby’s work shows us how changing our habits can change our lives—and the world we live in.
Today, Ruby's books have been translated into 10+ languages and are distributed worldwide.
Complementing her degrees in art and American Studies, Ruby has researched animal agriculture, health, nutrition, and the benefits of a plant-based diet for over 15 years, helping raise a vegan child through adolescence.
Ruby lives in Los Angeles.
