Tonight, Tuesday, February 23, 2021, at 6:00 pm, the Library Society welcomes author and CBS Sunday Morning News correspondent Martha Teichner, a fellow Seabrooker, and Mo Rocca to discuss Martha’s new memoir via Zoom.
In short order, When Harry Met Minnie: A True Story of Love and Friendship goes like this: boy dog meets girl dog, the fairy tale part of this story. But there is so much more to this book. After Martha agrees to meet Harry and his owner Carol, what begins as a transaction involving a dog becomes a deep and meaningful friendship between two women with complicated lives and a love of Bull Terriers in common. Through the heartbreak and grief of Carol’s illness, the bond that develops changes Martha’s life, Carol’s life, Minnie’s life, Harry’s life; it changes Carol’s death as well. In this touching narrative, Martha considers the ways our stories are shaped by the people we meet, and the profound love we can find by opening our hearts to unexpected encounters.
This event is free, but an RSVP is required. To RSVP, call 843-723-9912. Respondents will receive Zoom links and passwords on the afternoon of the event.
