Author Event - Eva Silverfine Ott: How to Bury Your Dog
Lizzy has been leading an insulated life: she tends her adopted strays and goes to work at the blood lab. On the day she buries Happy, the abandoned basset hound she adopted years before, she learns a real estate developer is threatening the heart of her rural community—a tranquil pond and a relic stand of hemlocks.
As a battle over the development unfolds, and the dynamics among Lizzy’s remaining pets shift, she opens herself up to two young neighbors who share her love of the natural environment. As Happy’s elements return to the earth, buried memories find their way to the surface inincreasingly curious ways.
"An introverted animal lover gets drawn into an anti-development fight in this literary novel. An absorbing, restorative tale of community and nature." -Kirkus Reviews
How to Bury Your Dog is for readers who love multigenerational stories with a strong sense of setting and a touch of the surreal.
Like many of us, Maggie is navigating her path through a complex world-except, her world is the stream.
