American cities were once full of animal life: cattle driven through city streets; pigs feeding on trash in public alleys and basements; cows crammed into urban feedlots; horses worked to death in the harness; dogs pulling carts and powering small machines; and wild animals peering out at human spectators from behind bars. In his new book, Andrew Robichaud (Boston University) reconstructs this evolving world of nineteenth-century urban animal life—from San Francisco to Boston to New York—and reveals its importance, both then and now.

At Massachusetts Historical Society starting at 5:30 PM. Includes a reception with light refreshments and followed by Q&A. Free for MHS members and Fellows, and holders of an EBT Card to Culture or ConnectorCare Card to Culture. $10 for general public.
