Wayne Pacelle, president of the Humane Society of the United States, will be making a stop at Huntersville's Barnes & Noble in Birkdale at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 2.
Pacelle will discuss his bestselling book, "The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them." He'll also take questions and sign copies.
In his book, Pacelle examines the deep links of the human-animal bond and conflicting impulses that have resulted in widespread cruelty to animals.
The event is co-hosted by Charlotte Mecklenburg Animal Care & Control and the Humane Society of Charlotte.
