    April 22, 2021

    On Thursday, April 22 at 7:00 PM, join Inlandia in conversation with Riverside’s favorite dog-loving author, Teresa Rhyne, as we laugh, learn, and celebrate “National Lost Dog Awareness Day” all at once! If you’ve ever lost, loved, or lived with a dog, “An Evening with Poppy in the Wild Author Teresa Rhyne” is an event you will not want to miss. Free and open to the public. To RSVP, please visit: https://tinyurl.com/TeresaRhyne

    Get your signed copy of Poppy in the Wild: A Lost Dog, Fifteen Hundred Acres of Wilderness and the Dogged Determination that Brought Her Home at Cellar Door Books! Click here to order: https://www.cellardoorbookstore.com/book/9781643135427

    Send a copy of your receipt to cati.porter@inlandiainstitute.org for an early-entry meet and greet with the author.

    Teresa J. Rhyne is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Dog Lived (and So Will I), a surprisingly hilarious memoir about her dog and her both surviving cancer. The sequel, The Dogs Were Rescued (and So Was I), won the Pat Santi Memorial award from the Dog Writers Association of America. Her newest book, Poppy in the Wild: A Lost Dog, Fifteen Hundred Acres of Wilderness and the Dogged Determination that Brought Her Home continues her tradition of writing humorously about tragedies that happen to her and her dogs. Tragedy plus time plus cute dogs equal heartfelt comedy.
