On Friday, Feb. 24, Humane Society of the United States President and CEO Wayne Pacelle will discuss his book, The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them at Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill. The discussion will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and is being co-sponsored by Orange County’s Animal Services, which will have adoptable animals on site during the reading.
With the poignant insight of Animals Make Us Human and the shocking reality of Fast Food Nation—filled with history, valuable insights and fascinating stories of the author’s experience in the field—The Bond is an important investigation into all the ways we can repair our broken bond with the animal kingdom and a thrilling chronicle of one man’s extraordinary contribution to that effort.
HSUS is the world’s largest animal protection organization. It is highly visible and works on a variety of levels and issues to protect and improve animal welfare worldwide.
“Mr. Pacelle’s appearance is a significant opportunity to promote awareness and discussion of animal welfare and the contemporary humane movement," Bob Marotto, director of Orange County Animals Service, said. "It is also a significant opportunity for us to continue to promote the needs of homeless animals for new homes and tremendous efforts of shelter workers in our own and other communities.”
Flyleaf books is located at 752 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd in Chapel Hill, and information about their events—including this one—can be found on their website.
