Tom Ryan - 'Will’s Red Coat: The Story of One Old Dog Who Chose to Live Again'

From Tom Ryan, the best-selling author of Following Atticus, comes another true story of the bond between a man and his best four-legged friend: Will’s Red Coat: The Story of One Old Dog Who Chose to Live Again. When Tom adopts Will – deaf, mostly blind, frightened, and aggressive – he intends to give him a home in which to die in dignity. Through patience and empathy, Will perseveres for two and a half more years, with a puppy-like zest for life. Tom’s dogs, Samwise and Emily, will be attending the event and would love to take selfies!

Representatives from SPCA of Wake County and North Hills Animal Hospital will be present. 

We ask that you leave your furry friends at home today! We love having dogs (and the occasional cat) in the store any other day, though.

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.
