Tomorrow (Thursday), author Jane Paley and her dog Hooper, a yellow Labrador who survived Hurricane Katrina after being abandoned and left homeless, will visit the Windsor Terrace Library to read Hooper’s story to children.
Hooper was saved by Labs4rescue in New Orleans and now lives in Connecticut. Hooper Finds a Family: A Hurricane Katrina Dog's Survival Tale, was written for children ages eight to twelve.
Ms. Paley and Hooper are active participants in animal-related services, including Labs4rescue. Hooper is a certified therapy dog who visits patients in hospitals, nursing homes, hospices, and physical therapy centers. He is also involved in a reading for buddies program that matches dogs with young children who are learning to read.
