Join us on Tuesday, August 7th at 7pm to celebrate the release of Woodstock Farm Sanctuary’s founder, Jenny Brown’s book, “The Lucky Ones: My Passionate Fight For Farm Animals”
In “The Lucky Ones: My Passionate Fight For Farm Animals” Jenny tells of how at the young age of 32 she’d already reached her goals in the documentary world working for the likes of Errol Morris, PBS’s Frontline, and the Discovery Channel. Then a dormant but deeply ingrained need to do something to really help animals rose to a head—an early mid-life crisis—and she volunteered for the Texas mission. She moved from Boston to rural Watkins Glen, New York, in 2002 to live and work at an animal sanctuary and learn all she could about shelter operations. There Jenny and her husband Doug found the confidence they needed to start a sanctuary of their own in Woodstock two years later. Today, Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary takes care of over two hundred rescued farm animals and has thousands of visitors annually. By placing people within eye contact of beings mostly known as food, the sanctuary changes hearts and minds about the animals abused in our industrialized food system.
We are very excited for this event. Jenny is a longtime friend and her passion for her work is evident and everything she says and does, plus she is super fun to be around.
Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary is truly one of my favorite places on the planet and visiting always reignites my fight for the plight of farm animals and I can only assume this book will have the same effect for me and you!
Jenny will be on hand to discuss the book, sign copies, and party with y’all (Jenny’s from Louiseville, by the way)
Books will be available for purchase.
There will also be some light refreshments.
