NYT Bestselling Author Jon Katz Presentation and Book Signing- Talking to Animals

Come listen and meet NYT Bestselling Author Jon Katz as he talks about his latest book Talking to Animals-How You Can Understand Animals and They Can Understand You.

A fundraiser for Pettee Memorial Library and Historic Memorial Hall

Bartleby's Books will be on hand selling Jon's book.

Meet the author and booking signing at end of presentation.

Jon Katz has written nineteen books and for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Slate, Rolling Stone, Wired, and the AKC Gazette. He has worked for CBS News, The Boston Globe, Washington Post, and The Philadelphia Inquirer.
In Talking to Animals, Katz—who left his Manhattan life behind two decades ago for life on a farm where he is surrounded by dogs, cats, sheep, horses, cows, goats, and chickens—offers us a deeper understanding of the inner and outer lives of animals and teaches us how we can more effectively communicate with them, made real by his own remarkable research and experiences with a wide array of creatures great and small. He will marshal his experience to offer us a deeper insight into animals and the tools needed for effectively communicating with them.
