Animal Book Club Interview: Mark Hawthorne

Posted by Jennifer Molidor, ALDF's Staff Writer on November 20, 2013

ALDF’s Animal Book Club is so excited to bring you an interview with author Mark Hawthorne. Mark’s latest book Bleating Hearts: The Hidden World of Animal Suffering is on sale now! Buy the book from this great independent book seller.

Bleating Hearts has already received wide-ranging praise as the most comprehensive compendium of animal exploitation thus far produced. This illuminating book removes the veil of shadows that hide many of the ways animals are harmed. However, the book also includes a message of hope and concrete ways for each of us to take action to improve the lives of animals! Don’t forget to check back next week for a special review and discussion of Bleating Hearts, and a giveaway for three lucky winners!

  1. I ordered Mark Hawthorne’s “Bleating Hearts” for our public library. I’m waiting for its inclusion to our database so I’ll be able to link it to add it to our library’s collection. I believe it’s so important to have books like this in public libraries to inform people of the horrific, cruel treatment of animals. The depth of abuse and cruelty of animals is mind-boggling, but we need books such as “Bleating Hearts” to expose this cruelty and to give direction on how to take action for animals.

    I CANNOT THINK OF A BETTER SUBJECT FOR A BOOK, IT WILL OPEN THE EYES OF PEOPLE WHO WILL AT LONG LAST REALIZE THE UNTOLD CRUELTY TO SO MANY INTELLIGENT ANIMALS, A LOT OF THEM WERE PETS, E.G. HORSES AND RACEHORSES WHO ARE YET 2 YRS OF AGE BUT NO POTENTIAL TO WIN. THEY ALSO THROW DOGS AND CATS OF ALL AGES AND SIZE INTO A GAS CHAMBER WHICH TAKES THEM 30 MINS OF EXCRUCIATING HORROR TO DIE. THIS IS STILL DONE IN QUEBEC.
