We anticipate that some of the audience for this evening will be four-legged, as well as the more customary kind, as Alexandra Horowitz, author of the bestselling Inside of a Dog is here tonight with her newest, Being a Dog: Following the Dog Into a World of Smell (Scribner). “Horowitz…explores the way dogs experience the world in this rich and absorbing examination of noses and scents…Both dog lovers and pop science readers will want to stick their noses in this book, and they may find themselves using their noses, like Horowitz and dogs everywhere, to experience the world more vividly.” —Publisher Weekly. “I'm not entirely certain whether Alexandra Horowitz's Being a Dog has made me want to buy a dog or morph into one—but I do know that it was magical. Horowitz has crafted an utterly engrossing, witty, finely-observed narrative that will make you look at the power of the nose in a wholly new way.” —Maria Konnikova.
