Join us on February 16 at 6:30 for a special Book Club: Book Launch Event.
Author Timm Otterson'll join us as he discusses his new book, "All Creatures Weird and Dangerous."
About the Book
An improbable journey through the world of strange and mysterious creatures.
All Creatures Weird and Dangerous describes the author’s experiences as a veterinarian drawn by chance to care for various cryptozoological creatures. As a practicing veterinarian, the author is called upon, as if by strange forces, to care for a Chupacabra, Sasquatch, Lake Erie’s monster Bessie, mermaids and fairies in Newfoundland, and eventually a unicorn in the Highlands of Scotland. Drawing on his experiences as a wildlife rehabilitator and exotic-animal veterinarian, the author cares for these odd creatures, describing his work in accurate medical detail and touching on the importance of compassion and the need to respect all creatures on our planet. An homage to James Herriott’s All Creatures Great and Small while touching on stories equally appropriate for an X-Files episode.
