The Big Read - The Underdogs

Join others in your community as we discuss:

The Underdogs

by Melissa Fay Greene

Springboro Library Branch

Wednesday, March 21

6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Books are available at both library branches.

Adults ages 18 and up.

Written about 4 Paws for Ability, a nationally-recognized nonprofit agency based in Xenia, Ohio, The Underdogs tells the story of Karen Shirk, a woman who was told she was 'too disabled' to be given a service dog.  Despite being ventilator-dependent and immobile, she decided to raise and train her own therapy dog.  In the process, she found many people, even children, get the same negative response when they apply for a service animal.  Karen decided to train dogs for children with disabilities, and later veterans from recent conflicts who have developed PTSD or lost the use of limbs or hearing while in combat.  After two decades 4 Paws for Ability is the largest organization whose primary mission is to place service dogs with children.  Author Melissa Fay Greene, a two-time National Book Award nominee, tells the stories of children and dogs who have been placed together, prisoners who help train the dogs, and veterans who benefit from service dogs.  Each story proves that the unconditional love of a dog can change lives.
