Author Talk with Gene Baur: Living the Farm Sanctuary Life

Farm-SanctuaryFULL)Gene Baur, the cofounder and president of Farm Sanctuary, the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization, knows that the key to happiness lies in aligning your beliefs with your actions. Living the Farm Sanctuary Life: The Ultimate Guide to Eating Mindfully, Living Longer, and Feeling Better Every Day is the definitive vegan and animal-friendly lifestyle guide.

In the book, he and Gene Stone, author of Forks Over Knives, explore the deeply transformative experience of visiting the sanctuary and its profound effects on people’s lives. The book covers the basic tenets of Farm Sanctuary life-such as eating in harmony with your values, connecting with nature wherever you are, reducing stress-and offers readers simple ways to incorporate these principles into their lives.  Baur will be talking about the Farm Sanctuary life on Thursday, October 22 at 7:00 pm in the Kelley Presentation Room at Fairfield University.  Registration is requested.

For more than 25 years Gene Baur has traveled the country, campaigning to raise awareness about the abuses of industrialized factory farming and our current food system.  He has visited hundreds of farms, stockyards, and slaughterhouses, documenting their deplorable conditions.  His pictures and videos exposing factory farming cruelties have aired nationally and internationally, educating millions about the plight of modern farm animals. Gene began his activist career selling veggie hotdogs out of a VW van at Grateful Dead concerts to fund farm animal rescues; today he is the president of the Farm Sanctuary.  With shelters in New York and California, Farm Sanctuary provides rescue, refuge, and adoption for hundreds of farm animals each year.  Gene is also the author of Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food (2008), a national bestseller.
