Sancho's Scene: Community Events that Wander off the Path

Dawn FarmDawn Farm

Walking past Peaceable Kingdom earlier this week, I noticed an adorable poster in their window. Arranged in layers like a barnyard trifle, a thoughtful cow, an orderly row of puffy chicks, and a stout pink pig announce the 34th annual Dawn Farm Jamboree. The event takes place this Sunday, September 9, which happens to be the same day as the Kerrytown BookFest and the AAUW Book Sale here in Ann Arbor. All those pastoral animals marching by make me want to reach for James Herriot’s All Creatures Great and Small, or perhaps a little Dick King Smith. That’ll do, pig.
