I just wanted to let you know that I think your adult lecture series have been so informative! I loved the one from the “dog whisperer” last year and then the one I just attended about Dementia. I’ve learned so much useful information that I’ve passed onto my friends and family! Thanks again, and keep up the great work!
I read Wowbrary recommendations and pick books from there. I like it a lot!
