Peter Zheutlin  - The Dog Went Over the Mountain

Thursday, August 8, 7 p.m.

On the cusp of turning sixty-five, Peter Zheutlin and his beloved Albie, a rescue dog of similar vintage, take a poignant, often bemusing, and keenly observed journey across America and discover a big-hearted, welcoming country filled with memorable characters. They come away with a newfound appreciation for the life they temporarily left behind, and a determination to live more fully in the moment as old age looms. Inspired by John Steinbeck, this 9,000-mile odyssey allows Zheutlin to experience all that America is and means today, and having Albie by his side opens up people and pockets of this country (and a few new smells). Similar in approach and tone to Bill Bryson’s bestselling travel classics, but with an endearing canine sidekick, The Dog Went Over the Mountain will delight dog lovers, baby boomers, and anyone who seeks to experience life on the open road with a four-legged companion.

Peter Zheutlin is the New York Times best selling author of Rescue Road: One Man, Thirty Thousand Dogs and a Million Miles on the Last Hope Highway (Sourcebooks, 2015) and a freelance journalist and author whose work has appeared regularly in The Boston Globe and The Christian Science Monitor. Prior to starting his writing career, Mr. Zheutlin practiced law and taught legal skills at the University of Virginia and Northwestern University law schools. 

Copies of his newest book (yet to be released to the public) will be available at Rediscovered Books during the event ONLY and Peter will be doing a book signing at the shop afterwards.
