Leslie Guttman Headlines the Next "Conversations with Animal Authors" Teleconference
The Animal Communication Book Club's next "Conversations with Animal Authors" teleconference, featuring Leslie Guttman, author of "Equine ER," will be held on Tuesday, September 29th, 2009 at 8:00pm (EDT).
Leslie Guttman is an independent journlist, freelance writer, and animal lover who spent a year shadowing veterinarians at the world renowned Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky, which she describes as "the Mayo Clinic of horse hospitals."
"Leslie's intimate and often heart-wrenching observations of the life and death drama that is played out at Rood & Riddle and at the Bluegrass farms attended by its veterinarians make Equine ER a riveting read," said Maureen Harmonay. "I couldn't put it down, and I found myself in tears more than once as I poured through its pages. I look forward to talking with Leslie about her experiences as a witness to the often super-human efforts put forth by Rood & Riddle practitioners to save foals who seemed doomed during difficult births, horses who sustained dire injuries in freak paddock accidents, racehorses who suffered catastrophic breakdowns on the track, and horses stricken by illnesses that put their lives in imminent danger."
If you would like to learn more about what goes on behind the scenes of one of the top equine hospitals, you can join the "Conversations with Animal Authors" call by dialing 616-347-8100 and entering PIN #1063739.
