Dog lovers, as well as aficionados of great literature, will want to join us on THURSDAY MARCH 22 at 6:30 when we welcome PETER ZHEUTLIN with his latest book: “RESCUED; WHAT SECOND-CHANCE DOGS TEACH US ABOUT LIVING WITH PURPOSE, LOVING WITH ABANDON AND FINDING JOY IN THE LITTLE THINGS.”

In the follow-up to his New York Times bestseller Rescue Road, acclaimed journalist Peter Zheutlin offers a heartwarming and often humorous new look into the world of rescue dogs. Sharing lessons from his own experiences adopting Labs with large personalities as well as stories and advice from dozens of families and rescue advocates, Zheutlin reveals the surprising and inspiring life lessons rescue dogs can teach us.
“Zheutlin, author of the heartwarming Rescue Road (2015), returns with another uplifting look at the power of ‘second-chance’ dogs to change lives…[he] gives his fellow dog lovers exactly what they want, happily-ever-after stories that don’t sugarcoat the adoption process but nevertheless prove how these dogs positively change lives. With million of dogs waiting in shelters across the country…Zheutlin’s reportage remains important. Tell readers not to fear sad tales; they will enjoy every moment of this
passionate book.” Booklist
