Come by Books on Beechwood on Saturday, December 11 between noon and two o’clock to meet Angela Marcus. She is the author of the new book “One Cat’s Life: Telling Horatio’s Tale.”
From the jacket:
“Anne and Bruce Barnaby were not aware that they needed a pet, until the afternoon a cat appeared on their patio, and took them over. Horatio chose them as his second family, although he already had a family and a comfortable home in the neighbourhood.”
“This story is based on the life and character of a cat who did exist. Horatio started out as a stray, and the story tells how he corralled a life for himself through his looks, character and charm. From the picturesque village of Merrickville to Canada’s capital, Ottawa, a band of humans loved and supported Horatio through his relationships with a variety of people, a business venture, illness, modest celebrity, and philanthropic deeds. He even almost learned to type.”
“Horatio opened up an unexpected world for his second family, whose tale is inseparable from his.”
We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday!
