NORTHVALE, N.J. – Capt. Luis Montalván and his service dog, Tuesday, will make an appearance Sunday from noon-1 p.m. at Books & Greetings in Northvale.
In Montalván's new book, “Tuesday Takes Me There,” a service dog named Tuesday narrates his fun and exciting journey with his disabled veteran partner to a very special place. Tuesday and Luis, an Iraq War veteran, must travel by boat, bus, train, horse, pedicab and more as they race from New York City to the countryside outside the nation's capital for an important event. Along the way, they see many famous sites, share hilarious and touching adventures, and show young readers how trained service dogs help people with disabilities.
A 17-year veteran of the U.S. Army, Montalván served multiple tours abroad and was decorated with numerous awards, including two Bronze Stars, the Purple Heart, the Army Commendation Medal for Valor and the Combat Action Badge. In 2007, Montalván honorably departed the military.
Books & Greetings is at 271 Livington St., Northvale.
