Gwyneth Anne Thayer - 'Going to the Dogs'
Dog lover? Sports lover? Come in this afternoon for a treat. Gwyneth Anne Thayer brings us Going to the Dogs: Greyhound Racing, Animal Activism, and American Popular Culture on Saturday, August 24, at 2 p.m. Her entertaining account offers fresh insight into the development of American sport and leisure, the rise of animal advocacy, and the unique place that dogs hold in American life. One of our special guests is Derby, a retired greyhound. Zachary, the inspiration for the book and the Greyhound pictured, will also likely make an appearance.
