Best of the Book Nook: The Social Lives of Dogs, by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas


Twenty years ago I had the pleasure to meet Elizabeth Marshall Thomas. She was on book tour for her book "The Social Lives of Dogs: The Grace of Canine Company" and she came out to our studios in Yellow Springs to talk to me about it on the radio.

Her previous book "The Hidden Life of Dogs" had been a surprise best seller. If you love dogs you will hopefully savor this interview. This was my one and only opportunity to talk to her and we had so much fun that day. I'll give this book and this conversation my highest possible rating. Woof!

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library,  Clark County Public LibraryDayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
