NYT Bestselling Author reads TODAY!

Gwen Cooper, author of Homer's Odyssey
Next Chapter Bookshop @ 10:16am

Animal lovers will definitely not want to miss this event with Gwen Cooper, author of the heartwarimg memoir, Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat.

The last thing Gwen wanted was another cat. She already had two, not to mention a phenomenally underpaying job and a recently broken heart. Then Gwen's veterinarian called with a story about a three-week-old eyeless kitten who ahd been abandoned. It was love at first sight.

Little Homer quickly grew into a three-pound dynamo who eagerly made friends with the people who crossed his path. He scaled tall bookcases, survived being trapped alone for days after 9/11 in an apartment near the World Trade Center, and even saved Gwen's life when he chased off a home intruder. Homer's unswerving loyalty, capacity for love, and joy in the face of obstacles transformed Gwen's life. By the time she met the man she would marry, she realized the little cat had taught her the most valuable lesson of all: love isn't something you see with your eyes.

Hear more about Homer and Gwen's life together when you attend this free event!
