Author Reading: Gene Baur, Living the Farm Sanctuary Life: The Ultimate Guide to Eating Mindfully, Living Longer & Feeling Better Every Day

Gene Baur is the cofounder and president of Farm Sanctuary, the nation's leading farm animal protection organization. Baur believes that happiness lies in aligning your beliefs with your actions. In this vegan and animal-friendly lifestyle guide, he and Gene Stone, author of Forks Over Knives, explore the 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, and reducing stress. It also offers readers simple ways to incorporate these principles into their lives, and includes 100 recipes selected by some of the organization's greatest fans, such as Chef AJ, Emily Deschanel, and Moby.
Coupled with heartwarming stories of the animals that Farm Sanctuary has saved over the years, as well as advice and ideas from some of the organization's biggest supporters, Living the Farm Sanctuary Life is an inspiring, practical book for readers looking to improve their whole lives and the lives of those around them—both two-legged and four.
