Good Dogs Don't Make It to the South Pole: A Novel

Tuesday, June 29, 7:00 p.m. via Zoom

This month’s selection, Good Dogs Don’t Make It to the South Pole by Hans-Olaf Thyvold, is a delightful story of love, loneliness, and Arctic history, told from a dog’s perspective.  Tassen has always been a one-man dog. When his human companion, Major Thorkildsen, dies, Tassen  and Mrs. Thorkildsen are left alone. Tassen mourns Major by eating too many treats, and Mrs. T by drinking too much. But the two unexpectedly find common ground in researching Roald Amundsen’s expedition to the South Pole led by a pack of intrepid dogs.

As a special treat, the author will join us via Zoom from his native Norway!  Don’t miss this one — it will be lots of fun!
