Back again. I was at the Tucson Festival of Books on the University of Arizona campus. I had no idea this book fair was so big. 100,000 people attended over last weekend. I was thrilled at this evidence of people valuing books. And further evidence of the importance of animals in people’s lives. I was one of three on a panel called Animals and Healing. It was held in a lecture hall that seats 300 and the room was nearly full. I wish there had been more time for questions because I would loved to have heard from more of you in the audience. Thanks to Shirley Loose who had the inspiration to create this panel, and to Peggy Holt, our animal-loving moderator.
Also thanks, as usual, to all the members of my animal council who showed up to help me deliver their message.
