A unique writing workshop - writers of all genres are invited to share 10 minutes of their work aloud with a supportive community of authors who will provide constructive feedback for five minutes.
Ted Kerasote discusses his most recent book, Pukka's Promise: The Quest for Longer-Lived Dogs. The book really digs into health practices and breeding habits and the effects they have on man's best friend.
