Wayne Simmons will be at Off Square Books to sign The Story of Jules Verne: A Watch Pocket Dog.
THE TIME FOR THIS EVENT IS 2 P.M.
Wayne Simmons leads a charmed life. Still he maintains a relentless, unfulfilled dream—that of owning a truly exceptional hunting dog. At last, the bird dog of his dreams arrives, but instead of greatness and majesty, the man discovers a skinny foundling of questionable pedigree to agonize over. The Story of Jules Verne is a story for dog lovers. It is a true story—the experiences, the characters, even the rocky start of a very special relationship. The story, with paintings and illustrations by the author, recounts a young man's journey with his hunting dog over a ten-year span. In many ways, the book is a compilation of closely related short stories, written in sequence, about an ordinary guy and his "once in a lifetime" hunting dog.
