Join us via Zoom to celebrate National Dog Day and the release of author L.M. Elliott's new middle grade novel, Storm Dog about a special dog who changes lives. We will be joined by a real-life service dog and her trainer from the K9 Caring Angels, a dedicated team of service dogs, therapy dogs and handlers that work in different capacities throughout the community to help combat veterans, and provide comfort at fire houses, police stations, schools and counseling centers. The author will read from her new middle grade story and discuss the inspiration behind it, and we will help raise funds for the K9 Caring Angels. Pre-order a signed copy of Storm Dog now. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own furry friends to meet the virtual crowd!
About Storm Dog:
Whip-smart Ariel doesn’t fit in. Only in the winds of the Blue Ridge Mountains and spring storms that mirror the unhappiness she feels at home.
Her brother understands her, but he’s in Afghanistan. Her father hasn't been the same since George deployed. Her mother focuses on Ariel’s gorgeous sister. When Gloria is selected to be an Apple Blossom Parade princess, Ariel feels even more the outsider and takes to the hills.
There, during a raging storm, Ariel finds a lost dog who leads her to the safety of a cabin and Sergeant Josie, a former Army K-9 handler. Together—with music, dog-dancing, and a storm-child-crazy plan—the three outcasts find themselves.
