Literatour brings author Jenna Blum to Springfield via Zoom  

Jenna Blum, author of Woodrow on the Bench: Life Lessons from a Wise Old Dog, will talk about her book as part of the Springfield JCC’s Literatour a celebration of Jewish books and authors, on Tuesday, Nov. 2, at 6:30 p.m. on Zoom.

This program was previously set to be in-person, but now will only presented virtually.

Blum’s memoir pays tribute to her black Lab, Woodrow. Known to many as “the George Clooney of dogs” for his good looks and charm, Woodrow and Blum are fixtures in their Boston neighborhood. But Woodrow is aging. As he begins to fail, the true nature of his extraordinary relationship with Blum is revealed. Over the last seven months of his life, Woodrow and Blum’s neighbors taught her new lessons about life and love, including the power of community to carry a person through troubled times. The event, co-sponsored by A.W. Brown, is free and open to the public.
