Hogan’s Hope Book Signing Event
November 3 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The award-winning author, Connie Bombaci, will be signing her book, Hogan’s Hope, at the Booklovers’ Gourmet! Personalized copies make wonderful gifts, and shoppers can get a very special present as well as an early start on holiday shopping.
Judea, Connie’s deaf pup and licensed service dog, will be greeting customers to demonstrate what loving family members deaf dogs can make and how the myths regarding deaf dogs are untrue.
Profits from the sales of the book, Hogan’s Hope, will be donated to non-profit animal organizations and deployed service personnel.
Hogan’s Hope is the inspirational story of a deaf dog who escaped death during the time when the prevalent belief was that deaf dogs needed to be destroyed. It is the tale of a legendary deaf canine champion who endured severe abuse and prevailed as he turned upside down the myths of deaf dogs being dumb, difficult to train, and harmful. Hogan learned over seventy words in American Sign Language, engaged in normal puppy activities, and provided the hope of life, not death for deaf dogs worldwide. Through perseverance and enduring hope, Hogan’s courage provided inspiration to anyone, human or pet, that success and genuine love are truly possible. This heroic deaf dog continues to reveal that by choosing hope, anyone’s dreams can come true, and the world can be filled with steadfast faith, pure joy, and unconditional love. It’s a story like no other.
Connie Bombaci, a retired educator, is resolute in her love for animals, belief in the goodness of all God’s creations, and desire to provide encouragement no matter what the challenge. She appeared with Hogan on Oprah, Dateline, Jack Hanna’s Animal Adventures, and Amazing Tails and lives with her family in Connecticut.
