Hardcover mysteries 3 for $1.00

Author Luis Carlos Montalvan

Captain Luis Montalvan returned home from his second tour of duty in Iraq, having survived stab wounds, a traumatic brain injury, and three broken vertebrae. But the pressures of civilian life and his injuries proved too much to bear. Physical disabilities, agoraphobia, and crippling PTSD drove him to the edge of suicide. That's when he met Tuesday - his best friend forever. Tuesday came with his own history of challenges: from the Puppies Behind Bars program, to a home for troubled boys, to the streets of Manhattan, Tuesday blessed many lives on his way to Luis. Until Tuesday unforgettably twines the story of man and dog. Come to the library on Wednesday, June 5 from 6:30-8:30 PM to hear Captain Montalvan tell his story of finding his best friend and partner in life, his dog Tuesday. Books will be available for purchase and signing after the program.
