Animal welfare activist and author Cheryl Lyn Phillips will be signing copies of her new book, “GG’s Journey: From Lost to Loved,” at Tirami Su of Northville (146 Maincentre, Northville, Mich.) on Sunday, Nov. 8, 2015 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Come and hear Phillips read a passage, and learn about the heroic true story that inspired her compelling novel.

Phillips is dedicated to helping animals in need while spreading the word about the importance of humane education. Her debut novel is told through the eyes of GG, a once abandoned dog who overcomes significant obstacles on her quest to finally find a loving family. Phillips not only adapted GG’s story for print, but she was also the catalyst that put GG’s real life journey into motion.

“I first saw GG when I was volunteering on Maryland Street in Detroit. I immediately knew that she was alone and without shelter. I had some dog treats in my car, so I got out and began walking in her direction. As she approached, I could see in her eyes that she was a friendly, loving animal, but I could also see that she was sick and in need of medical attention,” says Phillips.

As readers witness GG’s struggle with life-threatening illness, misconceptions about her behavior, and the uncertainty of her future, they get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the systems that are designed to support, but often fail, our animals in need. Phillips hopes that her new novel does more than just tell GG’s story, which is why 15% of all net proceeds from the book, as well as other related merchandise, will be donated to animal welfare.

“I hope that the readers of ‘GG’s Journey’ are not only educated, but also inspired to spread the word about the countless other animals whose stories aren’t as fortunate as GG’s,” says Phillips.

In addition to getting their book signed and listening to Phillips read a passage, guests in attendance can enjoy the delightful ambiance and award-winning food and beverages from one of Metro Detroit’s most popular restaurants. For more information, contact Tim Mies at 734-776-1340.
