I’m in Adelaide and it’s a
family week and one event was the book launch by first cousin, Lara. I’d missed her last two book launches
although I had her products on my shelves.
Lara writes as one aspect of her little business of yoga, self-help and
more called In The Pink. The three books
have been on grief, although from chatting to Lara you’d never guess it. She’s a bright spark and witty presence. The first two books were on lost loves and
lost parents; this last is on lost pets/dogs.
Now Lara is a great dog lover. I
am too. We no longer share breeds, but
dog lovers are common and remain that way for life. They are lovely people, greatly informed by
their animals, and open to any others dog lovers, especially those who share
their breed. Megan and I have travelled
the world with cries of “Dachy alert” with subsequent pats and meetings with
dachshund owners wherever. Travel hint:
people love you if you show interest in their dog/s. But most must know that. So, otherwise, this was a lively event, well
lubricated, chatty and noisy with family-met-too-seldom and Lara’s string of
friends. Even George Clooney, although
only present somewhat in absentia. Given
the passions of dog lovers and some early sales, this might be Lara’s
breakthrough. Get a Kindle copy or
otherwise chase down Lara Casanova on FB or in an Adelaide bookshop.
Loss love and lessons : healing pet loss and grief / Lara Casanova was launched by Lara and various sisters and rellies and friends at the Maid and Magpie Hotel, Adelaide.
