The Blue Bunny Bookstore in Dedham Square will be hosting an event with Lucy, the R.E.A.D. dog, on Tuesday, August 18th at 11 a.m. Lucy is a black lab with a big heart, and she and her owner Pat Howes, are a registered R.E.A.D. team (Reading Education Assistance Dogs). They will be visiting The Blue Bunny with a special program to encourage reading, curiosity and confidence in kids. Lucy and Pat will then be joined by Joy Surprenant, who will share information about her kids charity, Catching Joy and their work with the MSPCA, while she supervises a free cats and dogs puppet craft activity. Free, but space is limited, so please pre-register. Call 781-493-6568 or email janet@dedhambluebunny for more information or to register.
