HANNI AND BETH: SAFE & SOUND won a Henry Bergh Children’s Book Award from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in 2008, and the book is available in Braille for children who are blind. Beth reads from the Braille version during presentations. She autographs books in print and in Braille, and (of course!) Hanni’s pawprint is rubber-stamped onto each individual copy.
Beth lives in Chicago. She is an NPR commentator and author of the memoir LONG TIME, NO SEE (University of Illinois Press, 2003). Her work has appeared in Woman’s Day, the Chicago Tribune, Dog Fancy and Dogs for Kids. She teaches a weekly memoir-writing class for senior citizens and works part-time at Easter Seals Headquarters in downtown Chicago, moderating their autism blog. Beth also has a personal blog highlighting the visits she and Hanni take to schools and libraries across the country – you can check out the link to Beth’s Safe & Sound blog on her website.
