Discussion and Book Signing with Thomas Farmen

Bessie's Story, Watching the Lights Go Out

Press Release

Bessie’s Story, Watching the Lights Go Out, by Thomas Farmen, is an inspiring story about a charming, brave, chocolate Lab who gradually loses her eyesight.

The author leads the reader from the unexpected diagnosis of terminal blindness for his beloved four-year-old pet through the two and a half year transition to sightlessness. 

In the process, Bessie unwittingly becomes an expert mentor and teacher for the high-wire act of growing older with grace and optimism.

Monday, October 28, at 7 PM at the William A. Bachelder Library, 12 Chase Hill Road, 304 Main Street, East Andover.
