Author Signing: Laura Steenrod, GRATITUDE A MEMOIR

After the unforeseen death of her mother in 2010, author Laura Steenrod is left feeling grief stricken and vulnerable without the safe haven their relationship provided. 
Upon arriving home from her mother’s funeral, still wearing her newly purchased black pantsuit, Steenrod sits in the middle of her kitchen floor amid copious amounts of dog hair and makes an anguished plea to her pack of dogs. “Please rescue me!” It is in that moment she realizes that she is surrounded by survival experts. 
GRATITUDE shares the story of Steenrod’s own struggles to manage crippling anxiety and grief with the stories of five remarkable dogs. This shared history of struggle becomes a transformative experience for Steenrod as the dogs demonstrate their capacity for healing, acceptance, and loyalty. The stories of her pack become an inspiring survival guide.
