Book Talk with Grove Mower
Wednesday, May 22nd
6 pm
The Lovatt Room Foyer

Author Grove N. Mower will be at the library on Wednesday, May 22nd to speak about and read from his new book Forty Rod Road: A Young Man's Tale of Adventure and Discovery. The novel tells the tale of a young man's road to adventure and discovery with a sight-unseen summer job at a Wyoming ranch, located on Forty Rod Road.

Grove Mower grew up in St. Louis and currently lives in Chicago with his wife Brooke. For three summers in the late 1970s he worked for Harve and Lois Stone on their ranch in Cora, Wyoming. He maintained journals of those summers that he used to turn into his first novel, Forty Rod Road. When he is not writing and reminiscing about his Wyoming past, he works for Hummer Mower Associates, a financial advisory firm in Chicago. He is currently involved with creating two sequels to Forty Rod Road, one that will pick up where Forty Rod Road left off (Hope will be published in 2020), and one that will feature the main character seven years later, more mature but still entangled with the goings on at Forty Rod Road.

Says Mower, “Forty Rod Road is a metaphor for those rough patches we have to deal with in life. Along the way we learn it is not the destination, it’s the journey that matters most.”

Seeking a registered therapy dog and handler

We're looking for a few good... dogs! We are hoping to begin a new literacy program at the library that utilizes dogs to help kids enjoy reading. Reading therapy dogs can help kids read better because for children it can be easier to practice reading aloud with a dog rather than in front of classmates or parents, gaining confidence without fear or embarrassment of making mistakes. We are looking for a registered therapy animal to visit the library occasionally and sit or nap while kids read to it.

Would you like your dog to be a reading therapy dog at the Pinedale Library? Teton County Pet Partners, the local chapter of the national organization Pet Partners, can help you and your dog become a registered therapy team this spring. Begin the process by emailing info@tcpetpartners.org or by calling Kelly Chadwick at (307) 690-8532.
