3 Animal Stories
An AOL Animal Books Chat Room
AOL Link... Animal Stories

Click here and save this link for Karen Iacobbo's ("arkangel10@aol.com") new bi-weekly book discussion chat in AOL's Oprah forum.

Meets every other Monday 9-10pm est.

If you are fond of animals, and have ever wondered about their lives -- how they relate to one another, how they survive in nature, how they relate to people, and how we relate to them -- this friendly (biweekly) book discussion is for you! We will read recently published and 'classic' books about animals such as: When Elephants Weep: The Emotional Lives of Animals, Born Free, Gorillas in the Mist, The Human Nature of Birds, God's Dog, and The Education of Koko. We will also allow time, if there is interest, for books of a more philosophical nature regarding the human and animal relationship.

First book to be discussed on Monday, August 16th, is Born Free (the true story of Elsa the lion), by Joy Adamson (published in 1960). Available at Barnes & Noble. Come and chat even if you don't get to finish the book!

Hope to see you every other Monday evening! :) Arkangel10@aol.com
