Keene - Thomas Farmen signing and discussing "Bessie's Story"

BESSIE’S STORY - Watching the Lights Go Out is an inspiring story about a charming, brave, unpretentious chocolate Lab who gradually loses her eyesight.  The author chronologically leads the reader from the original diagnosis of terminal blindness for his beloved four-year-old pet through the two-and-a-half-year transition to sightlessness.  In the process, Bessie unwittingly becomes an expert mentor and teacher for the high-wire act of growing older with grace and optimism.

Thomas W. Farmen is the Headmaster Emeritus of Rumsey Hall School in Washington, Connecticut.   He and his wife Ashley worked in partnership at the school for over four decades and now live in rural New Hampshire.  Dog owners for all of their forty-plus years of marriage, the Farmens travel, pursue a variety of outdoor interests and are active volunteers. Ashley is a New Hampshire Granite State Ambassador.  Tom serves on the board for several non-profit organizations, including Special Olympics of New Hampshire, and is an ambassador at Mount Sunapee ski area. The Farmens have two grown sons.
