The Launch

This past week was the launch of our new book, Adventures with Ari: A Puppy, A Leash, and Our Year Outdoors. Sponsored by Unity College, the event included a reading and book signing, plenty of time for the canine naturalist to mingle with her guests, and great food (including bone-shaped cookies for the humans). Here are some photos from the event:

I wish I lived close enough to come to an event -- I ordered my copy over the internet which is not as much fun as buying it in person and meeting Ari.

I just finished reading it -- and I loved it. I don't want to leave any spoilers on this thread, but I have to say that one chapter made me cry. (I'm sure you can guess which one.) But I laughed quite a few times throughout the rest of the book. I like how much informative stuff was woven into the narrative.

The Thundering Herd said...

That is so exciting. Congratulations.

We downloaded the book today onto our Kindle, so looking forward to reading it! Trying to figure out how to get a paw-ta-graph on a Kindle.

Oh, Kathryn!! I haven't been around much lately, but a most hearty congratulations on your success! Your lauch looked spectacular and I would've given a lot to be there with the two of you. Ari looked adorable, you looked beautiful (*love* your purple coat) and the initial reviews of your book are sounding stellar!
Tell me, is Ari considering penning a companion book now on her year with *you*? :-)
