06/18/15 Tell Them My Story, Friend
A presentation of the new book of touching personal stories inspired by animals in people's lives
- On June 18, 2015 at 6.30 p.m. in the premises of the Animal Friends Croatia association: a book promotion followed by vegan refreshments
A few years ago, Animal Friends Croatia together with an animal shelter from Cakovec started a project titled, 'Tell them my story, friend', which has resulted in the book of the same name featuring touching stories about animals that changed people's lives.
The promotion of the book, published by Dvostruka Duga and Animal Friends Croatia, will take place this Thursday, 18 June 2015, at 6.30 p.m. in the association's premises, 25 Jurisiceva Street, Zagreb. Aleksandra Hampamer, the editor of the book, as well as some of the 47 authors of the stories, will be guest speakers. A short presentation of the book will be followed by vegan refreshments.
The inspiration for the book was Tyson, a sad, old, and silver-haired dog found at the Cakovec animal shelter, and the inspiration for the project was a letter his owner wrote after Tyson died about how he changed her life permanently. After that, many people joined in by sending stories of their animal friends who enriched, healed, changed, and made their lives better. These stories show that love knows no bounds. Or species.
The book collects stories about animals who ennobled people's lives with their loyalty and the full panoply of feelings. It also incites questions about why animals are still so oppressed, used, and abused.
The authors describe their path to animals or their animal friends that ennobled their lives, healed them, and made them better people. By reading personal experiences of the authors, readers will be inspired to think about their own relationship to animals, about the fact that animals are sentient and compassionate beings, and that, like people, they also love their freedom and take delight in love, tenderness, playing, and life.
All proceeds from the book sale will go to the Cakovec's animal shelter and to Animal Friends Croatia. Therefore, this book can change our view of animals, but it can also help animals directly.
The book printing is cofinanced by the City of Cakovec. The promotion is sponsored by www.vegefino.com.
