We have connected with horses on a deeply personal and emotional level for centuries. Participating Dane County libraries will attempt to study, understand, celebrate and honor this connection in the "Horse-Human Connection" with funding provided by Beyond the Page. Events kick off with 13 libraries screening the film documentary Unbranded, produced by Ben Masters. The film highlights the beautiful relationship four recent college graduates develop with wild Mustangs as they ride from Mexico to Canada.
Following the film screening, local humanities experts will lead a discussion on various topics. The special guest speaker at the Rosemary Garfoot Public Library is Dr. Robert Streiffer, who will discuss Animal Ethics following the film.
