This program will present a selection of short stories read by the library staff, during an hour program to be conducted periodically in our location. The selection for the reading will come from items available in our collection. The format will be set to be composed of 1 to 3 short stories of different nature and authors.
After each story, participants will be encouraged to contribute their thoughts and opinions on what it has been read if they will desire to do so. Discussion of stories will be held in a respectful environment to those participating.
Delve into the magical, unforgettable world of the world’s most beloved veterinarian.
For decades, Herriot roamed the remote, beautiful Yorkshire Dales, treating every patient that came his way from smallest to largest, and observing animals and humans alike with his keen, loving eye.
Meet young Herriot as he takes up his calling and discovers that the realities of veterinary practice in rural Yorkshire are very different from the sterile setting of veterinary school. Some visits are heart-wrenchingly difficult, some are lighthearted and fun, and yet others are inspirational and enlightening. From seeing to his patients in the depths of winter on the remotest homesteads, to dealing with uncooperative owners and critically ill animals, Herriot discovers the wondrous variety and never-ending challenges of veterinary practice as his humor, compassion, and love of the animal world shine forth.
Join us on the Library’s front lawn!
IMPORTANT: Discussion will be outside, weather permitting. In the event of rain, we will meet via Zoom. Registration is required!
Limited copies of this book will be available at the circulation desk. All are welcome to attend!
