May 9 - Laurie Hess, DVM - "Unlikely Companions" book talk and signing.
We are quite pleased next week to have Dr. Laurie Hess,
avian veterinarian, come give us a talk about her new book,
"Unlikely Companions: The Adventures of an Exotic Animal
Doctor (or, What Friends Feathered, Furred, and Scaled Have
Taught Me about Life and Love)."
This delightful book is full of stories of some of the
fascinating and delightful creatures that have come into
her practice and enriched her life. Having read the
book, I can tell you it's a real page turner as she not
only tells individual tales, but has an animal mystery
that goes through the whole book until it's solved at
the end. I read the book in one sitting!
Those of you who have heard Dr. Hess speak at the club
before know she's an excellent speaker and we're sure
this talk will be equally as exciting!
If you have the book already, you can bring it be
signed. If not, Dr. Hess will have copies available at
the meeting for purchase and signing.
