This is a special time for Farm Sanctuary as we celebrate the release of our President and Co-Founder Gene Baur’s new book, “Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food.” The book is being published by Simon & Schuster in March 2008. The book places an urgently needed focus on farm animal issues – making a call to action and a call for compassion. It is certain to touch readers through its unique approach and inspiring personal stories of hope.

“Some of the stories Gene Baur tells will break your heart and others will speak to your deepest convictions. It’s a book about appalling cruelty and heroic kindness, and it points the way to a better world.” ~ Alicia Silverstone

“Filled with hope, this book is written for all who strive for a more compassionate world. I highly recommend it.” ~ Dr. Jane Goodall
