Calling all animal lovers--and not just the dog and cat parents out there. Would you eat tacos every day for every meal for the rest of your life? No (well, maybe). How about wearing only denim jeans? No way. So why befriend only one species? Pet owners know this better than anyone. With more than twenty books to her name, Sy Montgomery is proud of her cross-species friendships. In How to Be a Good Creature, life lessons are taught through interactions with thirteen animals, including a pack of emus, a tarantula, an octopus, a beloved Scottie puppy, and a weasel. Fellow animal lover Vicki Croke--author of Elephant Company and wildlife reporter for WBUR--will join Sy Montgomery to delve into nature writing, portraying characters who may squeak instead of speak, and the power of feathered, hairy, and scaly friends. Sponsored by the MSPCA-Angell.
