All About Animals

bilde“As I’ve often said, ‘There’s no such thing as a dumb dog, but God knows there are continents filled with dumb people,'” said Rita Mae Brown in an interview with Sally Friedman from the Courier-Post. Rita Mae Brown is what I like to call a whippersnapper, a term I reserve for only the best and brightest. Her vivacious voice and character shines through in her writing and interviews. Her newest book is about the life lessons she has learned from animals – things like trusting her instincts, appreciating all of her senses, and most of all, playing.

The Courier’s article makes for a great read, and an even better preview to meeting Rita in person. She’ll be giving a presentation, question and answer session, and book signing, Saturday November 7th from 4-5 PM.
And if that’s not enough to entice you, PAWS will be having a pet adoption going on before and after the event, so there will be no shortage of animal appreciation. Grab your tickets here.
