My Name is Leka


If you’re looking for something to do on Friday night and you have a young adult in your family, then Dutton’s bookstore’s book party for “A Dog Called Leka” may be just the ticket. Writer Willard Manus will read and sign from his latest novel which officially hits the bookstores on August 26th.

Renowned author Willard Manus gives us this grand story of high adventure set on the beautiful Aegean Sea. “A Dog Called Leka” tells the story of Ben Edgeworth, an eighteen-year old boy, and his remarkable dog Leka, as they sail among the Greek isles in a catamaran built by Ben himself. The reader will join with the two adventurers as they face unexpected dangers, learning to survive by their wits and skill. Leka came to Ben as a hungry stray, searching the shipyard for scraps of food. He quickly proves himself to be a faithful companion in an extraordinary journey that will stay with the reader long after the last page is turned.
