Jenna Blum, author of Woodrow on the Bench: Life Lessons from an Old Wise Dog – a Milwaukee Reads event

About this event

For anyone who has ever owned an old wise dog, this Women’s Speaker Series event is for you! Milwaukee Reads presents Jenna Blum for her new book Woodrow on the Bench: Life Lessons from an Old Wise Dog.” This event is cosponsored by Lynden Sculpture Garden and Boswell Book Company.

For this event, Blum will be in conversation with Elizabeth Berg, author of many beloved novels and the memoir I’ll Be Seeing You, now available in paperback.

This event is held at Shully’s A.T.S. in Thiensville. Tickets are $30.50 plus sales tax and ticket fee, and includes a copy of the book and light refreshments. Cash bar available. Please note this is a tented outdoor event. You may bring your dog to this program. Masks and Covid vaccination required.

Early readers are loving this book! Jodi Picoult writes: “When I say Jenna Blum’s upcoming Woodrow on the Bench wrecked me and that I’m now sobbing eating all the chocolate, I mean it in the best way possible.”

Conversation partner Elizabeth Berg is also a fan: “Woodrow on the Bench is a touching tribute as well as a gripping story that will make you laugh and cry. It will also make you understand the majesty and wisdom imparted by the animals we are lucky to keep by our sides for as long as we can.”

For this event, we are not able to provide books ahead of time. You’ll be able to pick up your copy of Woodrow on the Bench at the event.
