Author Emily Anthes Talks About Pets at The Westport Public Library on April 9
Customizing one's pet is not a new concept. For hundreds of years we've been breeding dogs and cats to suit our needs and whims. But we're entering a brave new world of genetic manipulation. In Emily Anthes new book Frankenstein's Cat: Cuddling Up to Biotech's Brave New Beasts, she talks about cats that glow green under ultraviolet light and the cloning of beloved dying pets so that you can have another chance with them. Anthes will be at the Westport Library Tuesday to discuss the possibilities.
