There's no disputing the fact that Rita Mae Brown has lived a dynamic life full of incredible experiences - she's been a literary icon, groundbreaking feminist, Hollywood darling, and now a working farmer tending thousands of acres in rural Virginia. But throughout it all, one thing she has always been is a passionate lover of animals - from the cat that purred her to sleep in her cradle to the foxhounds and horses that fill her barn, an animal companion has always been by her side. She will share some of the many experiences that she had with animals as she discusses her new memoir Animal Magnetism: My Life With Creatures Great And Small. The event will include a book signing and books will be on sale at the event.
