Last fall, a miniature schnauzer (Atticus M. Finch) and his owner hiked their way into the hearts of New Englanders. A local phenomenon, Following Atticus has been the constant author-event request among our customers, and we are pleased to finally be able to oblige.
Tom Ryan will join us in the store for an evening of stories and Q&A, followed by a signing. Atticus will be there (barring unforeseeable complications), and Will as well. Because other dogs being present make the event distracting and stressful for our canine stars, we ask that you leave your own four-legged friends at home.
After a close friend died of cancer, middle-aged, overweight, acrophobic newspaperman Tom Ryan decided to pay tribute to her in a most unorthodox manner. Ryan and his friend, miniature schnauzer Atticus M. Finch, would attempt to climb all forty-eight of New Hampshire's four thousand- foot peaks twice in one winter while raising money for charity.
