Well, as they say, the show must go on. But what's a fledgling publishing company to do in this COVID-19 world? If you're Archimedes' Printing Shoppe & Sundry Goodes you don your mask, douse yourself in bug spray and head to the naturally socially distanced deep woods to throw a virtual book launch and signing for your debut book Gata Unbound: A Series for Ailurophiles of All Ages.
Susan Russell, Kaity Lacy and I are beyond thrilled to finally take the wraps off this one-of-a-kind book series (the deluxe hardcovers arrive this week)! Joining us (though a few trees distanced) are Mac's Fund, Philadoptables, The Cowboy Cat Wrangler and The Mad Catter. Cannot wait to unveil what we're all doing to save more than 80 Philly cats and prevent thousands more from roaming the city's streets. It's all about life saving. It's all about compassion. It's all about TNR.
So what's that? Why are we in the woods? Check out this video and join us Monday, June 15th at 6:00 p.m. live on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter! Oh, and Susan, Kaity and I really will be signing all those pre-ordered deluxe books with Kaity making an original doodle in each. If you haven't ordered yours yet, no worries! You'll find the books in our store, of course!
Join us for a conversation with the inspiring Anne E. Beall, a cat advocate and aficionado, and author of Community Cats; Heroic, Helpful and Caring Cats; Heartfelt Connections; and many other besides! A Yale university graduate, researcher and founder and CEO of Beall Research Inc., Anne's books not only entertain, but also educate. Whether she's writing a detailed, insightful book about community cats (feral or friendly!) or analyzing Grimm's fairy tales with her signature market research, you're bound to love what you've read and learned.
I found inspiration to make art through those that need rescuing. Like my George, every rescued animal comes with a lesson they teach us. We learn to be better caregivers, to be better listeners by following their example, and in turn, we learn to appreciate those who are more like us than different.
