Join Third Place Books in welcoming Peter Zheutlin, author of The Dog Went Over the Mountain: Travels with Albie: An American Journey.
On the cusp of turning sixty-five, and inspired by a re-reading of John Steinbeck’s Travels with Charley, Peter Zheutlin and his beloved Albie, a rescue dog of similar vintage, take a poignant, often bemusing, and keenly observed journey across America and discover a big-hearted, welcoming country filled with memorable characters. They come away with a new-found appreciation for the life they temporarily left behind, and a determination to live more fully in the moment as old age looms.
