Author Susan Orlean Talks Writing, the Legacy of Rin Tin Tin

Our fascination with dogs seems like something born out of the modern era of Animal Planet and YouTube. But through the story of Rin Tin Tin, author Susan Orlean explores the roots of this obsession, which started after WWI.

Rin Tin Tin: The Life and Legend” tells the story of a German shepherd who starred in 29 mostly silent films in the ’20s. KUNC’s Grace Hood talked with Orlean about how the dog’s progeny—and legacy—continue today.

Orlean will talk at the Fort Collins Hilton on Tues., April 17 at 7 p.m.
