Event Peter Zheutlin Author Talk: The Dog Went Over the Mountain: Travels with Albie

September 17, 2019 | 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

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 new-found 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 American 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 best-selling travel classics, 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 bestselling author of Rescue Road: One Man, Thirty Thousand Dogs, and a Million Miles on the Last Hope Highway (2015) and Rescued: What Second-Chance Dogs Teach Us About Living with Purpose, Loving with Abandon, and Finding Joy in the Little Things (2017).
