When your home has a revolving door for abused and abandoned animals, keeping pets takes on a whole new dimension! Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heart-rending, Born Without a Tail chronicles the true-life adventures of two animal rescuers living with an ever-changing house full of pets. The author takes us on a journey from childhood through adulthood, sharing tales, (mis)adventures and insights garnered from a lifetime of encounters with a menagerie of twenty remarkable animals.  Cayr Ariel Wulff is a native Ohioan who has worked as an artist for her entire life. This is her first book. Currently, she resides in a log cabin deep in one of our Nation’s National Forests with her lifemate, four dogs and three cats.

Hungry for Harry?
Like the rest of the world, we eagerly await the release of the seventh and final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, on July 21st.  Loganberry Books will indeed be selling the book, 20% off, and you're welcome to reserve a copy or just come buy one. 

For grand events and midnight parties however, there are two most excellent events we recommend:  one at our neighbors Mac's Backs and the rest of the folks in Coventry Village, and the other at The Learned Owl and the entire town of Hudson, Ohio.  Enjoy!

Bloomsday Book Club
Thursday, July 26, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
We raised a mug of Guinness to Joyce on the official Bloomsday last month at Nighttown, and got to know each other a little better, and renew our interest in tackling this great book.  But we haven't read so far that you can't catch up to us and join the group:  so here's an invitation to the fence-sitters:  read a bit of Ulysses and come share your thoughts with our informal group. 

oh, and did we mention that the LitArts room now has air-conditioning?  :-)
