THIS EVENT IS POSTPONED DUE TO A FAMILY EMERGENCY – EVERYTHING IS OK BUT SHE CAN’T MAKE IT. STAY TUNED FOR RESCHEDULING…
Join us for a reading from Lost Dogs of Rome by Patsy Hand.
International art courier Francesca Baltimore is beaten and robbed of a case holding Victorian jewelry in Heathrow. As she heals, she is desperate to regain the trust of her old clients, when she is offered a job with more dangerous ramifications than any she has ever attempted: She has five days to rescue an idealistic boy who fled to Rome and is trapped in a battle between a radical animal rights group and a brutal Italian businessman with a history of illegal activity. The 15-year-old boy is her grandson, Will, who doesn’t know she exists. For the first time, Francesca has no confidence in her ability, particularly when lives are at stake. The rescue becomes complicated by her son’s anger and her encounter with a wayward priest fighting his own struggle for retribution. She soon discovers that Will, somewhat like her younger self, has no intention of leaving before the fight begins.
