Veterinary naturopath and show dog enthusiast Tracie Laliberte will help you learn what your dog is really trying to tell you.

Do you know what your dog is trying to tell you? Learn how every dog communicates using sounds and body language. Understanding the human translation of these messages enables you to "read" strange dogs, enriches the relationship with your pet, and is useful for correcting problem behaviors in canine interactions. Best of all, you can communicate back! This program examines an array of doggy body signals as well as an index of pooch sounds and explains what they mean. It also shows you how this information can be used to outline any dog's emotional state.

lib_book3 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM We Are Market Basket Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Elizabeth Safford   978-686-4080, ext 12   esafford@mvlc.org
   

With its arresting firsthand accounts from the streets and executive suites, We Are Market Basket is as inspiring as it is instructive. What is it about Market Basket and its leader that provokes such ferocious loyalty? How does a company spread across three states maintain a culture that embraces everyone—from cashier to customer—as family? Can a company really become an industry leader by prioritizing stakeholders over shareholders?

Set against a backdrop of bad blood and corporate greed, We Are Market Basket is, above all, a page-turner that chronicles the epic rise, fall, and redemption of this iconic and uniquely American company.

Authors Daniel Korschun and Grant Welker will bring copies of their book for sale.

    Location: Garden Room
        There are 35 spaces available.
