Travels with Casey


Dog lovers of Austin, join us tonight as we revel in the joys of bonding with your beloved canine. New York Times Magazine writer Benoit Denizet-Lewis is here to share the story of his journey across America with his nine-year-old Labrador mix, Casey. What does our relationship to our dogs tell us about ourselves and our values? We're happy to co-sponsor this event with Austin Pets Alive!, who will also be on hand tonight. 

About Travels with Casey

"I don't think my dog likes me very much," New York Times Magazine writer Benoit Denizet-Lewis confesses at the beginning of his journey with his nine-year-old Labrador-mix, Casey. Over the next four months, thirty-two states, and 13,000 miles in a rented motor home, Denizet-Lewis and his canine companion attempt to pay tribute to the most powerful interspecies bond there is, in the country with the highest rate of dog ownership in the world. "Travels With Casey" is a delightfully idiosyncratic blend of memoir and travelogue coupled with an exploration of a dog-loving America. What does our relationship to our dogs tell us about ourselves and our values? Denizet-Lewis explores those questions--and his own canine-related curiosities and insecurities--during his unforgettable road trip through our dog-loving nation.
