Rescue and Jessica: A Life Changing Friendship (and Birthday Party for Rescue!)

Tuesday, May 14 from 6:30 to 8pm in the Lebowitz Room at the Morse Institute Library

For the whole community (book is geared to children ages 5-9)

Meet co-authors Jessica Kensky and Patrick Downes, a married couple who were both injured during the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. They will be joined by the star of their book and ASPCA Dog of the Year, RESCUE!  Learn about the role of service dogs to help people with physical disabilities and the amazing things that people and dogs can accomplish together through hard work, perseverance, and partnership. 

The authors will read aloud from Rescue and Jessica: A Life Changing Friendship and take questions from the audience. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and the authors will sign books for attendees. You can even get Rescue’s “pawtograph” with your copy!
