LR Animal Village & Humane Society Co-Host Book Signing

 

***CALENDAR ADVISORY***

Humane Society of the United States President to Make Little Rock Appearance

Best-Selling Author of The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them at Little Rock Animal Village June 14

WHO: Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States

WHAT: Discussion, Q&A and book signing 

 

WHERE: Little Rock Animal Village 4500 Kramer St., Little Rock

WHEN: Thursday, June 14; 5:30 – 7:00 PM       

The event is cohosted by Little Rock Animal Village. Pacelle will be introduced by City of Little Rock Director Joan Adcock.

Wayne Pacelle’s bestselling book The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them (William Morrow) has been called revolutionary, uplifting and inspiring. Pacelle explains what underlies our age-old connection with other creatures and challenges readers to help build a more humane society. As Pacelle takes readers on a journey from the nation’s great open spaces to its crowded factory farms to the ice floes of Canada where seals are slaughtered, he illuminates the stark dichotomy we face in an age when animals are more beloved yet more abused than during any period in history. There is a better way, Pacelle argues, making the case for a humane economy based on ecotourism, fur-free fashion, improved farming systems, and

other innovative models. It’s a message of hope and an inspiring call to action for all. The book debuted in a paperback version on April 3, 2012.

Pacelle will discuss the themes in the book and issues of local, national and international impact at the Little Rock appearance.

During a quarter–century of leadership in the humane movement, most of it at the HSUS, Pacelle has become America’s foremost voice for those who cannot speak in their own defense, and has helped to bring animal protection from the margins to the mainstream.
