"MOLLY, THE DOG WITH DIABETES" BOOK RELEASE PARTY IS AUG. 3
Stop in to meet Sue Powers and Molly at the August 3 book release party.
From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 3, Wellsboro’s First Friday, a book release party for “Molly, The Dog with Diabetes" is being held at From My Shelf Books & Gifts at 7 East Avenue in Wellsboro.
Written by Kevin Coolidge, this book is for children and their families. Those who attend will be able to meet Molly, the star of the new book and her human, Sue Powers, who suggested the idea to Coolidge. Powers and Coolidge both reside in Wellsboro and are neighbors.
Molly, a seven-year-old dachshund mix, was diagnosed with diabetes four years ago at Christmastime.
“I felt that writing about what a dog with diabetes goes through would show children they can live a normal life if they take care of themselves,” Powers said. “Kevin and I began chatting about the parallels between diabetic dogs and people. I told him that Molly goes on vacation with us and has children and dogs that come to play with her. He talked about ideas he had. We both began to get really excited about this book," said Powers.
“It’s a feel good book about how happy and healthy Molly is as she lives with diabetes," said Coolidge.
