The Education of Will

Patricia will be talking about her memoir, The Education of Will: A Mutual Memoir of a Woman and a Dog. The "Will" in the title of Patricia's new memoir has two meanings. First, it refers to her Border Collie, Willie, who came as a "troubled, spark of a dog," who was loving and attentive, but also consumed by fear. However, the word "will" also refers to will power, which, as the book shows, is not enough to help a panicked dog, much less a dog owner overwhelmed with her own fears. Patricia will touch on her very personal story about how her beloved Willie first set her back, but eventually led to healing from the traumas in her own past that she had tried to "will" away for decades.


Join Patricia as she details her personal journey with Willie to turn a life of fear
into one of confidence and compassion.
