Book Nook: The Underdogs - Children, Dogs, and the Power of Unconditional Love by Melissa Fay Greene
Melissa Fay Greene has had a long and successful career as a writer of non-fiction books. She is frequently approached by people who are wondering if she can help them to find publishers or agents for their book projects. Greene is patient and polite. Even so the sheer volume of these requests can cause her to be somewhat hesitant to offer advice. One day she was contacted by a woman in Atlanta about a book idea. Greene, who lives in Atlanta, agreed to meet the woman for coffee.
As she listened to this woman's account she became intrigued. After a while she asked the woman if it would be OK for Greene to write a book about this woman's story idea. The woman agreed and this book project was now underway.
In this interview you will hear how Greene found out about the amazing things that are happening in Xenia, Ohio because a woman named Karen Shirk had the inspiration to open her service dog academy, 4 Paws for Ability. You'll laugh when you hear about it. You might even shed a few tears of joy. This is the feel good story of the year.
