Zooburbia:
Meditations on the Wild Animals Among Us


Animal & nature lovers of all stripes, join us this evening when writer Tai Moses is here to make the case for being mindful and compassionate stewards, and students, of the wildlife with whom we coexist. Urban and suburban residents share our environments with many types of wildlife. Moses's new book, Zooburbia, reveals the reverence that can be felt in the presence of animals and shows how that reverence connects us to a deeper, better part of ourselves.

All about Zooburbia
To be alienated from animals is to live a life that is not quite whole, contends nature writer Tai Moses in Zooburbia. Urban and suburban residents share our environments with many types of wildlife: squirrels, birds, spiders, and increasingly lizards, deer, and coyote. Many of us crave more contact with wild creatures, and recognize the small and large ways animals enrich our lives, yet don't notice the animals already around us. Zooburbia reveals the reverence that can be felt in the presence of animals and shows how that reverence connects us to a deeper, better part of ourselves. A lively blend of memoir, natural history, and mindfulness practices, Zooburbia makes the case for being mindful and compassionate stewards -- and students -- of the wildlife with whom we coexist.

TAI MOSES has been a journalist and editor for many years. She's also worked as a veterinary assistant, a barista, a hotel maid, a salmon canner, and a wildland firefighter. Formerly a senior editor at AlterNet.org, her writing has been widely published in the independent press. Tai lives in Oakland, CA, with her husband, her dog Arrow, and a number of cats.
