Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States, will discuss his latest book and hold a Q-and-A session and book signing from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Friday, June 15 at the Barnes & Noble on 4099 Meridian St. in Bellingham.
Wayne Pacelle is author of the bestselling book “The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them.”
In the book, 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 people 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.
The book debuted in paperback on April 3.
Pacelle will discuss the themes in the book and issues of local, national and international impact at the Bellingham appearance.
