My “Humane Bookshelf”: A humane education display launches at Marblehead’s Abbot Public Library – Wednesday, June 19, 2019 at 7 P.M.
WHO: Carrie Thomas, Marblehead resident, and volunteer with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS)
WHAT: Curated in collaboration with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), my “Humane Bookshelf” is a humane education display, featuring books and materials guiding the public on how we can help build a more humane society. Humane education is designed to encourage empathy and promote understanding of the need for compassion and respect for people, animals, and the environment. HSUS works to end all forms of animal cruelty and achieve the vision behind the name: A humane society.
This “Humane Bookshelf” display for both adults and children, features books and materials curated by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to guide readers in more humane treatment of animals. Adult Fiction, Adult Non-Fiction, Children’s books, and Cookbooks are part of this display. Cookbooks are part of the display since plant-based eating benefits people, animals, and the planet. Americans eat more meat per person than almost any other country. Our habit is leading to poor health, environmental degradation and the suffering of billions of animals every year.
WHEN: Launch event is scheduled for Wednesday, June 19, 2019 at 7 P.M. Refreshments will be served by Shubie’s Marketplace.
WHERE: Abbot Public Library, 235 Pleasant St., Marblehead MA.
