“This Book is Cruelty Free: Animals and Us” A talk by author Linda Newbery

Saturday 11th February, 2023 - 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hear author Linda Newbery talk about her book

Can we live without cruelty? How do the choices we make in our daily lives – what we eat, buy, use, wear or throw away – affect animals and the environment? This is a book for everyone who wants to live kindly and tread lightly.
Shouldn’t that be all of us?
If you follow Linda on Facebook or Twitter you won’t be surprised by this venture into non-fiction for her latest book: She supports various animal welfare and environmental campaigns including Compassion in World Farming, Wild Justice, Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, Veganuary, Authors4Oceans and the League Against Cruel Sports. She doesn’t eat animals – She’s been vegetarian for almost all her adult life and is now vegan.
Her book looks at a range of topics, from cutting down on meat or cutting it out altogether to engaging with the natural world and making a wildlife garden. Also it considers ways to be an animal advocate, organisations to join and inspirational people to follow, and how to avoid feeling overwhelmed.
Where we can choose between kindness and cruelty, why would we choose cruelty?
