Norfolk, Va. – On March 30, Ingrid Newkirk—the president and founder of Norfolk-based PETA—will read from and sign copies of her new book, Animalkind. Written in collaboration with bestselling Forks Over Knives author Gene Stone, it explores the richness of animals’ multifaceted lives and inspires readers to take action to protect and preserve them.
When: Monday, March 30, 6 p.m.
Where: Barnes & Noble at Tidewater Community College, 300 Monticello Ave., Norfolk
With a foreword by Mayim Bialik and already winning praise from Alec Baldwin, Paul McCartney, Edie Falco, and Anjelica Huston—who described it as “the book to buy, read, and give to others so that everyone finally sees why they should respect and cherish all animals”—Animalkind explores animal communication and the ways animals navigate their environments, outlines the many ways our modern world is leaving animal exploitation in the dust, and details easy steps that we can all take to help make the world a kinder place.
As Bialik notes in the book’s foreword, “Animalkind is a book that empowers readers with both the knowledge to understand who animals are while dispelling the notion of ‘what’ we assume animals are, and the power to change the way the world treats them.”
PETA—whose motto reads, “Animals are not ours to experiment on, eat, wear, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org.
