Book Talk with Author Ellen Cooney – Wednesday, January 18, 1 PM – Seminar Room

Posted by Michael Gorzka on January 6th, 2017

Ellen Cooney Please join the I’ll Read Anything Book Group and author Ellen Cooney to discuss her book.

“The Mountaintop School for Dogs” is a story of strays and rescues, kidnappings and homecomings, moving on and holding on and letting go. And it is, ultimately, a moving and hilarious chronicle of the ways in which humans and canines help each other find new lives, new selves, and new hope.

Day & Time: Wednesday January 18, 1 PM

Location: Second Floor Seminar Room

Sometimes when dogs greeted a returning soldier, they’d go over the edge. They would have to take a few moments to run crazily in circles around the human, or around a room or a yard. I’d have to take a break from watching, so my brain had a chance to absorb what I was seeing: that there is such a thing as joy being bigger than the container that holds it.
