Dog lovers get a special treat tonight. A screening of My Dog Tulip — an animated love story between British author J.R. Ackerley and his adopted German shepherd, Tulip — will take place at Hodges Taylor Art Consultancy. As the mother of a 2-year-old Chihuahua, I’m giving this film two paws up. A classic tale of man’s best friend, the film explores the companionship and bonds that form between dogs and their owners. $5-$7. April 21-23, 7:30 p.m. Hodges Taylor Art Consultancy, 401 N. Tryon St. For more information, visit www.lightfactory.org.

When author Tamara Park got the urge to take a spiritual journey, she embraced it. Her newest book, Sacred Encounters from Rome to Jerusalem, is the by product of her travels. Flying into Rome, Italy, Park followed the life of Helena (mother of the first Christian emperor of ancient Rome). This led her across borders — all the way to Jerusalem, Israel — and out of her usual comfort zones. She’ll sign and discuss the new book at Park Road Books. Free. April 23, 11 a.m. Park Road Books, 4139 Park Road. 704-525-9239. www.parkroadbooks.com.
