‘Following Atticus’ paperback release and fundraiser for the Animal Rescue League of NH-North Aug. 7 at the Red Jacket
CONWAY — The Animal Rescue League of NH-North is pleased to be hosting a fundraising dinner for the Conway shelter featuring author Tom Ryan and his marvelous canine sidekick Atticus M. Finch. The dinner is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 7 beginning at 6 p.m. at the Red Jacket Mountain View Resort in North Conway and will feature a speaking engagement from Ryan and Atticus.
Aug. 7 is the release date of the paperback edition of “Following Atticus,” and both Ryan and Atticus will be signing books that evening. The Conway shelter will receive a portion of any books that are pre-ordered from White Birch Books.
Ryan has been very supportive of the Animal Rescue League of NH - North, most recently helping the Conway shelter raise money to help Scruffy, a little Shih Tzu found abandoned in a box on a hiking trail in the White Mountains.
Ryan recently rescued William Lloyd Garrison, an older Schnauzer, from the New Jersey Schnauzer Rescue Network.
“In thinking of how neglected Will was when we adopted him, and about how Scruffy was heartlessly left behind, I’m reminded how fortunate we are as a society to have organizations that save and rescue animals from dire situations,” Tom commented.
Tickets are $50 per person, and for a special price a limited number of VIP seats are being offered to sit with Tom and Atticus’ at their table on a first-come first-served basis. There will be a raffle that evening for two framed and matted, limited edition prints of the poster of all 48 of the 4,000-footers that the duo climbed. The prints are signed by Tom, Atticus, and map artist Kathy Speight Kraynak.
