Before the corona crisis hit, PETA founder Ingrid Newkirk’s latest book tour was garnering standing-room only crowds. For readers eager to learn more about her new book, titled animalkind: Remarkable Discoveries about Animals and Revolutionary New Ways to Show Them Compassion—written in collaboration with bestselling Forks Over Knives author Gene Stone—a “virtual book talk” is now available.

The book guides readers on ways to ensure animals are respected and protected from needless harm. Ingrid’s stories are interesting and fun, including accounts on how geese fall in love and stay with a partner for life, how fish “sing” underwater and how elephants use their trunks to send subsonic signals to alert other herds miles away to danger. Those who have already read the book or watched the virtual book talk are posting positive reviews online and on social media. 

Ingrid is also the author of Save the Animals! 101 Things You Can DoMaking Kind ChoicesThe Compassionate Cook or, “Please Don’t Eat the Animals!” and other books available in multiple languages. Gene Stone has written, co-written, or ghost-written more 45 books, including Forks Over KnivesHow Not to DieLiving the Farm Sanctuary Life, and The Engine 2 Diet. He has reached millions of readers with important ideas about ways to work, live, and thrive.
