This Saturday, I will be helping at a special appearance event of Dean Koontz at Canine Companions for Independence in Oceanside. After addressing the audience at 10:00 a.m., Mr. Koontz will sign copies of his book Ask Anna: Advice for the Furry and Forlorn. The event is free and open to the public. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing by Mr. Koontz.
In addition to the signing, attendees can enjoy demonstrations by Canine Companions assistance dogs, tour the campus and more. You will find the facilities beautiful, and what the dogs are capable of will astound you.
What Dean Koontz has done for Canine Companions over the years goes beyond description. He has donated millions of dollars to the institution, and all his royalties from Ask Anna will go directly to Canine Companions.
I am looking forward to finally meeting Mr. Koontz. I have seen him on stage once before at a Canine Companions graduation ceremony, and we’ve conversed through letters, but have never personally met. He’s aware that I’m also an author, but from the extent of popularity and success, the gap between us is … well, to be honest, quite large.
So if you’re interested in meeting Dean Koontz, and live close to Oceanside, CA, please join us this Saturday the 11th. You can buy his book, get it signed, and have the satisfaction of knowing that you helped a fantastic organization provide an unbelievable service to those in need of assistance dogs.
