April 7 in Calgary: Dog-Kissed Tears: Songs of Friendship, Loss and Healing

Dog-Kissed Tears explores the life and loss of a remarkable 15-year-old retriever named Rosa. Lambert Zuidervaart tells the story of a furry family member’s unconditional love and gives voice to the quiet grief of losing a canine companion and dear friend. His meditative memoir, sprinkled with musical references and spiritual overtones, connects Rosa’s friendship to his circle of human friends. Lambert's reflections on Rosa’s life and death bring back childhood memories and lead him into self-discoveries of middle age. Join Lambert as he reads from his book and reflects on how music and creative writing can help us live through personal loss.
