Join The Women’s Building in celebrating the publication of Paws for Consideration, the debut mystery novel from former Women’s Building board member Amy Butcher. Reminiscent of Tales of the City, but with more dogs, it makes a great summer read! Performers, readings from the book, an optional scavenger hunt with prizes, premier of the book trailer video . . . and more! All proceeds from book sales will go to support The Women’s Building.
About Paws for Consideration:
Daisy-frumpy, wheelchair-bound, self-appointed mayor of her San Francisco neighborhood-likes dogs a little bit more than people. But when she discovers Skittles, a terrified Boston Terrier, still leashed to his very dead owner’s arm, she must roll into action. Careening through the Castro and the Mission, past upscale restaurants and low-down dungeons, Daisy and Skittles brave gentrification, gay-bashing, and homelessness to paw and sniff their way deep into that most dangerous of all relationships: neighbor.
“With its engaging mystery plot and a diverse cast ranging from amusing to alluring and occasionally both, Paws for Consideration is a true page-turner. Naughty and not for the faint-of-heart, here’s hoping this is just the first in a new series . . . I know I’d read the next installment.”
