w-bruce-cameron-dogs-promiseW. Bruce Cameron at Stevenson Hall, Naperville, 7:00 p.m. Not a comedy event per se, but this bestselling author has a fabulous sense of humor and is sure to make the evening inspiring and a lot of fun. (He also wrote the very funny Eight Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter.) He is here to discuss his new novel A Dog’s Promise which continues the story of Bailey from A Dog’s Purpose and A Dog’s Journey. Both books were made into hit movies which he wrote with his wife, comedy writer extraordinaire and Second City alum, Cathryn Michon. (She wrote, directed and starred in my favorite romcom of all time, Muffin Top.) Sponsored by Anderson’s Bookshops.
