And 50 contributors. I have a story included in the collection, and I'm very excited for a number of reasons.
Having one's work singled out for publication is a thrill. When the book's author is Dr. Bernie Siegel, a man I have admired for decades, the thrill increases. And when the book celebrates our relationship with animals, the thrill begins to orbit in outer space.
I envision this book reaching the countless people who have been touched by Bernie Siegel's writings and giving them a new awareness of the importance of the world of animals. I also see it reaching animal lovers and giving them new cause for joy.
The book will be published Nov. 3, 2015. I am deeply honored to be part of it.
