Dog Desk Book Club members choose an animal centric book each month to read alongside each other. We have a weekly zoom meet up for those of us able to do this on a Thursday from 7.30pm. It gives us a chance not just to talk about the book we are reading but say hello to each other & have a general catch up. We also have a forum where members can chat too with a thread dedicated to book club.
November’s book is Little Brown Dog by Paula S Owen. A novel based on a true story. It tells the tale of two women in Victorian London who hear about the plight of a little brown dog & seek justice. The story which unfolds is not dissimilar to events in very recent british history. High drama, court cases & tussles over a statue. Beautifully written by Paula, it will provoke emotion & challenge the mind.
December’s Book Club read is One of The Family written by broadcaster, presenter & animal advocate Nicky Campbell. Pictured here with the gorgeous Maxwell the book traces some challenging times in Nicky’s life. It not only reminds us what an incredible source of comfort a dog can be but that actually there are times when that comfort can actually save us from ourselves.
