In loving memory of our mascot, Shadow.                      1996 – 2013

The Shadow Project was inspired by Alex, a Portland boy with learning challenges, and Shadow, the dog who loved him.

 

 

The Boy Who Learned Upside Down (Black Heron Press, 2013) is based on the real-life story of Alex and Shadow, the dog who loved him.
