Kids Event this Friday!

Marlane Kennedy will be reading from her latest book, The Dog Days of Charlotte Hayes at 4:30 this Friday, August 28th. The reading will be at the library downstairs in Sarah's Corner.

As the reviewer Debra Lampert-Rudman notes, "Some very timely and interesting topics are covered in a gentle, first-person style. The Dog Days of Charlotte Hayes will appeal to both girls and boys who have ever felt like no one in their family understands them except, maybe, the dog."

Following the reading, make your way to uptown Westerville to celebrate the 4th Friday "Dog Days of Summer" from 6-9. If you hurry, you can get a free signed copy of The Dog Days of Charlotte Hayes with a donation for The Capital Area Humane Society. Copies are available at 6PM in front of the store Outside Envy (15 N. State Street).

Donations may be monetary, or they may be a new item needed by rescue groups, such as bowls, crate pads, food/ dog biscuits, collars, leashes, crate pads, dog toys, etc. Please, no used items.
