National Writers Series -- An Evening With Martha Teichner
Traverse City, MI 49686
It was a chance encounter at the Union Square Farmer’s Market that changed Teichner’s world forever. As fate would have it, her friend knew someone who was dying of cancer, from radiation exposure after 9/11, and desperate to find a home for her dog, Harry. He was a Bull Terrier ― the same breed as Teichner’s dear Minnie. Would Teichner consider giving Harry a safe, loving new home?
In short order, boy dog meets girl dog. But there is so much more to this book. After Teichner 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 Teichner’s life, Carol’s life, Minnie’s life, Harry’s life; it changes Carol’s death as well.
