Row Henson: MIRACLES ON COLLEGE STATION ROAD Event date: Friday, May 11, 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm Event address: 1662 South Lumpkin St. Athens, GA 30606 Avid Bookshop presents author Row Henson in celebration of her book Miracles on College Station Road. This event will take place on Friday, May 11, from 6-7pm at our Five Points location. The reading is free and open to the public, and we encourage you to purchase a book from us and get it signed by the author! ABOUT THE BOOK: This book contains fifty true life animal survival stories that will inspire every pet owner. Author Row Henson takes us on the journey of several dogs and cats, a pot-bellied pig, some horses, a couple of goats, an alpaca, a Siberian tiger and many more furry (and feathered) friends and the humans who love them. Each story is accompanied by wonderful photographs of the animals after they survived life-threatening illnesses and injuries thanks to the heroic efforts of the staff at the University of Georgia Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Author Row Henson's own beloved dog Mac was healed by the loving care provided by the UGA Veterinary Teaching Hospital, which allowed the duo to continue their world travels as chronicled (by Mac herself!), in Travels with Mac 'n' Row. It was out of this vet care experience, and with deep gratitude, that Henson spent three years interviewing other fur-families to discover the remarkable stories of their own pets' survival. Each short story also includes clinically accurate information that Henson hopes will help animal owners find hope as they navigate the care of their own cherished pets. All proceeds from Miracles on College Station Road benefit the Mac ‘N’ Row Scholarship Fund to aid students of the University of Georgia Veterinary Teaching Hospital. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Row Henson holds a Bachelor degree in Business Administration, with an emphasis in Management and Insurance, from the University of Georgia. She retired from PeopleSoft/Oracle Corporation in April 2013. Henson is the author of Travels with Mac 'n' Row which raises money for animal rescue organizations and has sold over 3,000 copies. Her latest work, Miracles on College Station Road, chronicles fifty miracle stories of animals whose lives were saved thanks to the heroes of the University of Georgia Veterinary Teaching Hospital. 100% of the proceeds of this book benefit the Mac and Row Scholarship Fund which helps the next generation of heroes attend the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine.
