Publishing and Media


Our mission is to inform and inspire new generations of global citizens to create a healthy, compassionate, and resilient world for animals and humans alike.

We are driven by and committed to equity, diversity, nonviolence, and an expanded community of subjects. We publish books, develop content, and promote ideas supportive of veganism, animal rights, humane education, recovery, therapy, and spirituality.

We publish books for all wanting to live with greater depth and commitment to the preservation of the natural world. If you would like to support us, consider donating.

Stack of books


LPM aims to educate, provide resources for, and amplify a new generation of citizens committed to finding solutions and collaboration. Our goal is to expand the definition of “humane” to one that nurtures, honors, and protects the web of life upon which all species, including our own, depend.

LPM was founded in 2020 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit to follow and expand on the legacy of Lantern Books—a publishing company co-founded by Gene Gollogly and Martin Rowe in 1999 on the principles of living with a greater depth and commitment to the preservation of the natural world. Our titles are also available as ebooks and audiobooks.
