Lucky Dog Books To Host SMU Grad Russell-Ides

Is he "Lucky" or what ?

Lucky Dog Books at 633 W. Davis St. is hosting a reading Saturday at 8 p.m. by author Rod Russell-Ides, a Junius Heights resident and SMU graduate who just penned a memoir called “Sparky and the Dip****.” Yes, that last word rhymes with “dipstick.”

The author, as some of you might know, is a longtime landscape architect, singer, and now a writer.

Before any dog owners get excited, let me warn you: this doesn’t appear to be a “Marley & Me” story.

From the news release: “For one summer Rod Russell-Ides and his older brother were a perfect synergy of high jinks and well intentioned mayhem to themselves, their dysfunctional family, and the Great Bend, Kansas population. From medical specimens in the refrigerator to adventures with dynamite, [the book] takes us on a wild ride you won’t want to end. How they survived the summer of 1961 is a darkly funny, harrowing journey recounted by a master storyteller.”
