Rebecca Warner At The Orchard For Book Signing

 July 2, 2021  Community NewsLatest Updates

The Orchard at Altapass welcomes Amazon bestselling author Rebecca Warner for a book-signing event on Saturday, July 24th, from 11 AM to 1 PM. In her emotional new novel, My Dad My Dog, Rebecca weaves her own powerful caregiving experiences into the heartwarming tale of a journey that a man with Alzheimer’s and an elderly dog are destined to take together.

Beyond chronicling the unlikely friendship of a sweet-natured war hero and an elderly Black Lab, Warner’s narrative also sheds light on the real-life challenges faced by the 16 million Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers who provide $232 billion in unpaid labor in the U.S. each year. Celebrating their contributions, and shedding light on those challenges, Warner offers a story of humor, warmth, family and personal growth.

Rebecca is the author of the two-time award-winning political thriller, Moral Infidelity, as well as Doubling Back to Love, which was included in the popular ten-novel anthology, Peace Love & Romance. Her third book, He’s Just a Man, is a self-help book for women seeking healthy romantic relationships. Rebecca and her husband of 33 years, Jason, live in Asheville with their feisty blue heeler, Chance.

Join Rebecca Warner in the red barn where she’ll be reading excerpts, signing her books and inviting comments and conversation. Visitors are welcome to bring their copies for signature or to purchase them at the event. This is the first book signing of the season. Three more are planned for later this month and into the early fall. Please visit the website for information, dates, and times.

Located at 1025 Orchard Road near Spruce Pine at mile marker 328.3 on the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Orchard is a not-for-profit working orchard, music, and educational venue. Hours are 10 AM to 5 PM., Wednesday-Sunday. Family- and pet-friendly. Wheelchair accessible. Buses welcome. For information, please visit www.altapassorchard.org or call 828-765-9531.

The first line in my book, My Dad My Dog, is "The knot in my stomach is unraveling with each mile I travel on the Blue Ridge Parkway." The cover photo is of a view from the BRP. In the book, Rachel and Joe (Dad) took many scenic drives on the Parkway. So it is fitting and flattering that Whitney, Associate Director of Guest Services of the Switzerland Inn (called "the jewel of the Blue Ridge Parkway") would ask for copies of My Dad My Dog to sell in the resort's gift shop. I went by to sign copies yesterday and to take in the incredible view and enjoy a delicious lunch.
