An Afternoon with Jessica Kensky & Patrick Downes & Rescue!


Written by Boston Marathon bombing survivors Jessica Kensky and Patrick Downes, Rescue & Jessica is based on their real-life experience with Jessica’s service dog Rescue. Rescue thought he’d grow up to be a Seeing Eye dog—it’s the family business, after all. When he gets the news that he’s better suited to being a service dog, he’s worried that he’s not up to the task. Then he meets Jessica, a girl whose life is turning out differently than the way she'd imagined it, too. Now Jessica needs Rescue by her side to help her accomplish everyday tasks. And it turns out that Rescue can help Jessica see after all: a way forward, together, one step at a time. An endnote from the authors tells more about the training and extraordinary abilities of service dogs, particularly their real-life best friend and black lab, Rescue.
We are honored to invite you to meet Jessica Kensky and Patrick Downes (and Rescue!) on Sunday, 22 April 2018 at 2 PM. This event is for all ages (but other than service dogs, we cannot include your furry friends). Please make your reservations by calling the shop at (925) 837-7337.
