Ignite Kit: Sparking Conversation about Cats

Gray Tabby Cat
Main Library
Premieres Monday, August 2 at (All day)

Aloof, independent, and a little mysterious, cats and their owners embody a unique philosophy of mutual respect and unconditional love. Explore this philosophy with the following books: The Karma of Cats, a collection of stories and poems by cat owners and edited by Diana Ventimiglia; The Little Book of Bob, in which author James Brown describes how his friendship with an orange tabby changed both their lives; and in the Fandex Family Field Guide: Cats by Kathryn Petras, Ross Petres, and Tetsu Yamazaki, which explores the history and quirks of the various breeds of cats. This kit will include an invitation to both a virtual and an outdoor discussion, as well as a list of recommended reading.
