On Thursday, June 21, The Friends of the Seaside Library will host noted author Ceiridwen Terrill as she reads from her book, “Part Wild: One Woman’s Journey with a Creature Caught Between the Worlds of Wolves and Dogs”.  The event begins at 7:00 p.m. and there will be book sales and signings presented by Beach Books.

“Part Wild” is the unforgettable story of Ceiridwen’s journey with a creature whose heart is divided between her bond to one woman and her need to roam free.  When she adopts a wolfdog—part husky, part gray wolf—named Inyo to be her protector and fellow traveler, she is drawn into Inyo’s spark of wildness.  Over almost four years, Terrill and Inyo’s adventures veer between hilarious and heartbreaking.  There are peaceful weekends spent hiking, adoptions of dog companions, and clashes brought on by the stress of caring for her space-craving wolfdog.  In the end she must confront the reality of what she has done by trying to tame a part-wild animal.

Ceiridwen Terrill is an associate professor of science writing and environmental journalism at Concordia University in Portland Oregon.  She is the author of “Unnatural Landscapes” and her essays have appeared in Oxford American and Isotope.
