Iowa author James Kenyon will be signing books from 1 to 3 p.m. Friday at Mattingly Music & Books.
Kenyon is a veterinarian who has practiced in Iowa for 35 years. The book titled “The Art of Listening to the Heart” is an Iowa or Midwestern James Herriot rendition of the relationships of man and animals. It shares how one has to listen to the hearts of both to truly appreciate each others well being. All animals are experienced from chickens, elk, sheep, kittens, puppies, pigs, sheep, cows and horses.
The stores are all true and will bring tears and laughter in the same chapter. Walking through each case and study will have the reader learn and appreciate the delicate balance of life and death and of the art of listening to the hearts of all.
