7A: All-Conference Read in Non-Fiction: ANIMALS STRIKE CURIOUS POSES by Elena Passarello
Limited Capacity filling up

Author Pagan Kennedy will discuss Animals Strike Curious Poses from the writer’s perspective -- structure, inspiration, process. Writes The New York Times Book Review of Passarello’s book, "I’ve spent decades reading books on the roles animals play in human cultures, but none have ever made me think, and feel, as much as this one. It’s a devastating meditation on our relationship to the natural world. It might be the best book on animals I’ve ever read. It’s also the only one that’s made me laugh out loud…. This is a book with burning current relevance.”
While we strongly encourage reading Animals Strike Curious Poses ahead of time, the conversation will be illuminating and meaningful to all.
