 Mimi Noonan  joins our World of Work series on Sunday, January 4th, with "Being a Vet is Personal." Dr. Noonan, DVM, DACVIM, is a veterinary internist, pet lover and mom with a powerful and touching life story. She will discuss not only being a veterinary specialist, but also the deeply personal familial bond she shares with her patients and their families.

• Our next Fiction Circle is on Sunday, January 4th. With 2015 marking its centenary, we’ll discuss T. S. Eliot’s poem “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” which first made Eliot’s reputation and ushered in the period of modernism. Beginning with “Let us go, then, you and I,” the poem can be easily read by searching for “Prufrock” on the internet.
