What can a dog teach us? When it comes to a black Labrador named Moses, it’s how to heal—and what it means to truly love. In Even the Dog Knows, NYT bestselling author Jason Wright takes readers on a 1,000 road trip beside a lonely man whose wife left for a fresh start but couldn’t convince him to join her; his grandson, a young man who might be destined to make the same mistakes, and their wise, old dog, who knows it’s up to him to bring everyone together. Moderated by Cliff Garstang of the Staunton Augusta Waynesboro Group of the Blue Ridge Writers Club.
Enjoy an uplifting story and refreshments, then take a special treat, provided by the Well Balanced Paw, to bring to your pooch back home.
