Please join us in welcoming animal rights author Kim Stallwood for a free book reading at the WHS Behavior & Learning Center (7315 Georgia Ave., NW, Washington DC 20012) next Thursday, November 13, at 5:30 p.m., organized by Alley Cat Allies.

Kim will be reading excerpts from his book “Growl: Life Lessons, Hard Truths, and Bold Strategies from an Animal Advocate” (Lantern Books, 2014).

Equal parts personal narrative, social history, and impassioned call for rethinking animal advocacy, Growl describes Stallwood’s journey from a meat-eating slaughterhouse worker to a vegan activist for all species. He explains the importance of four key values in animal rights philosophy and practice—compassion, truth, nonviolence, and justice—and how a deeper understanding of their role not only leads us to discover our humanity for animals, but also for ourselves.

Space is limited; please RSVP to jguerra@alleycat.org. Want to learn more about Kim? Check out www.KimStallwood.com
