Local animal doc to relate experiences in ‘Tale’ talk

Posted: Saturday, February 25, 2012

BATAVIA — This year’s “A Tale for Three Counties” selection, Yannick Murphy’s “The Call,” follows the daily life of veterinarian David Appleton.

A real-life veterinarian will share his own experiences in a March 8 talk at Genesee Community College, 1 College Rd.

Dr. Keith Carlson will present “A Tale for Three Counties Talk — A Day in the Life: Tales from a Large Animal Veterinarian” from 1 to 2 p.m. in Room T119. Admission is free.

Carlson will share reflections and stories about his own daily work life in his profession as a large animal veterinarian. He grew up on a small farm in Ohio and earned his doctor of veterinary medicine degree from The Ohio State University. He has worked for Attica Veterinary Associates, P.C. since 2000, and like the narrator of “The Call,” his practice focuses on large (farm) animals.

Tale is a community reading project serving Genesee, Orleans and Wyoming counties. It encourages people to read and discuss the same book, then meet the author. Murphy is scheduled to visit March 22 to 24.
