HADLEY — On Saturday, Sept. 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., animal intuit and consultant Nicole Birkholzer will be at the Barnes and Noble book fair located at 335 Russell St., Hadley. This event is a collaborative effort between the Foundation for TJO Animals, Barnes & Noble, and Pet Logic.
At noon and 1 p.m. through humorous and insightful storytelling, Birkholzer will share vignettes from her debut book, Pet Logic. Her stories remind readers of the magic that exists in their relationship with their pets.
The event will be filled with kittens available for adoption and a number of pet-related activities. Also, attendees will get a chance to meet Lili, a former TJO rescue dog who has become the foundation’s mascot. Attendees may download a voucher at www.mindful-connections.com/bn or www.tjofoundation.org/announcements/barnes-noble-hadley-book-fair. With the voucher, a percentage of any purchase will go to the Foundation for TJO Animals to help animals in need.
Pet Logic includes 14 of the author’s most inspiring essays and whimsical cartoon anecdotes to show how to make our lives richer by viewing the world through the lens of the pet kingdom. Jesse, an ancient Percheron, teaches us to trust our instincts in order to heal. Sammy, an inquisitive young goat, shows us how to accept reality in order to end struggle and gain peace. Cookie, the semi-feral cat, lets us see the world through her eyes so that we can gain a more balanced perspective. A snuggly baby raccoon proves that parenting comes in different guises. Sometimes quirky, often tear-jerking, and laugh-out-loud funny, Pet Logic is ideal for anyone who has suspected our bond with animals has far more wisdom to impart than they’d imagined.
