Bookmarks Presents L. M. Elliott

Author Laura Elliott will be sharing her new book, Storm Dog, which highlights the joy and special bonding that "dog-dancing" offers both trainer and dog. We will be joined by Barbara Long, a Canine Freestyle trainer and her dog, Ambrose. This special event will include a freestyle performance from Ambrose and some dog training trips from Barbara.

This is a free event, though attendees are encouraged to purchase a copy of Storm Dog if they are able.

About Storm Dog:
For those who have ever felt out of place, this affirming and heartwarming book tells a powerful story of the American South, the love of a dog, and the power of music. Perfect for fans of Maxi's Secrets and How to Steal a Dog, and for anyone who's ever loved a 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.

In this whimsical tale of self-discovery, L. M. Elliott captures the flavor of Virginia’s hunt country and Appalachia, while exploring definitions of beauty and belonging. Storm Dog will make readers proud to dance to their own rhythms.
