A landmark work, The Bond (purchase below) is the passionate, insightful, and comprehensive examination of our special connection to all creatures, written by one of America's most important champions of animal welfare. Wayne Pacelle, the president of the Humane Society of the United States, unveils the deep links of the human-animal bond, as well as the conflicting impulses that have led us to betray this bond through widespread and systemic cruelty to animals. Pacelle explores the biological and historical underpinnings of the human-animal bond and reveals our newfound understanding of animals, including their remarkable emotional and cognitive capacities. An eye-opening must-read, The Bond reminds us that animals are at the center of our lives, they are not just a backdrop. How we treat them is one of the great themes of the human story. 6:30pm

  1. Will definitely be there. We attended the talk and book signing of the author Johnathan Balcome on Friday night celebrating his new book "Second Nature" and it was fasinating. It was so crowded a few people were standing.

    By the way, thank you for your telling people about the Octavio Feline Foundation here on your website. I am no longer able to t-n-r myself as I no longer have a recovery area for post-op care available to me. Octavio Foundation is helping me with a stray cat later this week. I very much appreciate your informing people of this wonderful resource our community has.
