Author of The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them at Barnes & Noble on June 19

Wayne Pacelle’s bestselling book The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call 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. 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.
