Author Talk: John O’Hurley–The Perfect Dog
Monday, Nov. 25, 7 – 8:30 p.m.
Some people know him as J. Peterman from the Seinfeld show; others know him as the host of The National Dog Show Presented by Purina that airs each year on Thanksgiving Day; more may know his voice from his voiceover work, including SpongeBob Square Pants; and his steps may be recognized by “Dancing with the Stars” aficionados. However one is familiar with him, John O’Hurley shouldn’t be missed and he is at Wilton Library on Nov. 25 with his new book, The Perfect Dog. Posed as a question from his young son at last year’s dog show as to what is the perfect dog, the book is O’Hurley’s loving answer to that question. Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Elm Street Books. Registration is highly recommended due to limited seating.
