A good book, a great conference, and the power of pictures

Irreconcilable Differences

The reviews are in: “another grand slam,” “a real page turner,” “wonderful,” “life changing,” and a “must read for anyone who cares about the plight of animals.”

The Bark, one of the most influential dog magazines in the nation, calls Irreconcilable Differences “excellent reading” and “rigorously reasoned.” And nationally syndicated Animal Wise Radio calls it “The perfect follow-up to Winograd’s outstanding first book Redemption.”

The collection of essays covers the ethics of end-of-life “euthanasia,” feral cats, adoptions, the achievability of No Kill, aggression in dogs, spaying pregnant animals, and more.

Irreconcilable Differences Book Tour:

For Redemption’s 29-city book tour in 2007-08, I visited many major cities: Los Angeles, Boston, New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Las Vegas, Portland, Reno, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Indianapolis, St. Louis, Kansas City, Austin, San Antonio, Naples, and more. This year, I am going to communities outside of those cities.

Join me for an inspirational multi-media presentation on Building a No Kill Community, followed by a book signing. All proceeds from the sale of books benefit local No Kill shelters and rescue organizations.

Due to a book project on deadline, a trip to New Zealand to speak at their national conference and our own national No Kill Conference in Washington D.C., I’ve had to decline other cities until the Fall. My apologies to groups who wanted me to come to their community.

No Kill Conference 2010

Last year’s No Kill Conference was the sold-out, must-attend event of the year! And it is very close to selling out again this year, barely a month after announcing the event. In fact, it is at 95% capacity and will sell out very shortly. If you are planning on attending, register today – as once the conference sells out, there are no waiting lists and no exceptions.
