anim_dog_scottie 4:00 PM Rescued Dogs, a book talk Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact:    637-2630   
   

How far would you go to save a dog in need?

Freelance journalist Peter Zheutlin will talk about his latest book, Rescue Road: One Man, Thirty Thousand Dogs, and a Million Miles on the Last Hope Highway. The book is about Greg Mahle, who has driven over 8,400 miles a month -- more than a million miles in all over the last ten years -- bringing abused, abandoned and homeless dogs from the deep south to forever homes in New England. The author traveled more than 7,000 miles with Greg and spent time with rescue organizations and volunteers on the streets of Houston and other small cities and towns and in shelters in Louisiana and Texas. The book is a portrait of an extraordinarily devoted group of animal lovers who have upended their lives to save and improve the lives of countless forgotten dogs.

Peter Zheutlin writes regularly for Boston Globe and has also written for the Christian Science Monitor, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and AARP Magazine. The author invites you to submit pictures of your pets for a collage that will be displayed in the reading room for the month of October. Local animal shelters will also be invited to speak and perhaps bring a pet that is up for adoption. A portion of the sales of the book Rescue Road will be donated to the Rescue Road organization. This event is free, and the book will be available at the talk for purchase and signing.
