Zoom Speaker Series: A Conversation with Martha Teichner & Mo Rocca
February 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
A memoir of love and loss, of being in the right place at the right time, and of the mysterious ways a beloved pet can bring people together, from CBS Sunday Morning News correspondent and multi-Emmy-Award-winner, Martha Teichner. Ms. Teichner will be joined by fellow CBS Sunday Morning News correspondent and author, Mo Rocca, to discuss her new memoir, When Harry Met Minnie: A True Story of Love and Friendship, in what is sure to be an entertaining and moving evening.
In short order, When Harry Met Minnie: A True Story of Love and Friendship goes like this: boy dog meets girl dog, the fairy tale part of this story. But there is so much more to this book. After Martha agrees to meet Harry and his owner Carol, what begins as a transaction involving a dog becomes a deep and meaningful friendship between two women with complicated lives and a love of Bull Terriers in common. Through the heartbreak and grief of Carol’s illness, the bond that develops changes Martha’s life, Carol’s life, Minnie’s life, Harry’s life; it changes Carol’s death as well. In this touching narrative, Martha considers the ways our stories are shaped by the people we meet, and the profound love we can find by opening our hearts to unexpected encounters.
