Virtual Book Discussion: Reads Well with Others Book Group

Join us on Slack (see instructions below) for an online discussion The Mountaintop School for Dogs and Other Second Chances, by Ellen Cooney. Copies are available for pick up at the Library (in regular print, large print and audio on CD) also as a Hoopla eBook and eAudio and Overdrive / Libby eBook and eAudio.


Description: “Evie is making her way to the Sanctuary, [a dog rescue program high atop a mountain]. She has lied to gain entry. She has pretended to know more than she does about dogs, but she is learning fast. Once the indomitable Mrs. Auberchon lets her pass, she will find her way. Like the racing greyhound who refuses to move, the golden retriever who returns to his job as the Sanctuary's butler every time he's adopted, and the Rottweiler who's a hopeless candidate for search-and-rescue, Evie comes from a troubled past. But as they all learn, no one should stay prisoner to a life she didn't choose"
