Oak Brook book launch to support therapy dogs
OAK BROOK – Children’s author Nancy Gee will launch her new book, “The Secret Room,” during a reading with dogs event Nov. 4 at Oakbrook Center.
“The Secret Room” was inspired by the real life reading dogs, who work in libraries and schools all around America, helping children to develop a confidence and love of reading.
Gee was delighted to discover reading dogs at work in her own local libraries while she was doing readings for her first two books, “The Secret Drawer” and “The Secret Path,” and the idea for “The Secret Room” was born, according to an event news release.
Readers will have the opportunity to meet Gee and therapy dogs when she introduces “The Secret Room” at Barnes and Noble.
Gee will read from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and a percentage of sales from the day will be donated toward helping the Reading Education Assistance Dogs program at Intermountain Therapy Animals. Download a voucher from anancygeebook.com.
