Love Always Wags its Tail, by Kathy Porter

ImageNot surprisingly, this charming title immediately appeared on Amazon’s bestseller list for pet essay books, as soon as it was published.  One reader speaks of dogs leaping and dancing across the pages of this book.

The author always loved dogs, even as a child.  When she watched her son creep into the dog house to find a friend after a hard day at school, she began to think about the special friendship dogs offer.  For the last 20 years, she has been a leader in Rochester’s ex-racing greyhound rescue program.  She is also the author of the HealingRescueDogs blog.  A portion of the sales of this book will be donated to the American Brittany Rescue (ABR) organization.

Kathy Porter will appear at the Local Author Book Fair at the Fairport Public Library, 1 Fairport Village Landing, on Saturday, December 7, 2013, from 2 to 4 PM.

Dawn Dancing, by Elaine Webster

Poems in few words record vacation joy from Racquette Lake to Italy, special places from Pittsford to Florida.

Other poems treat political subjects, aging or loneliness with haiku-like precision.

Lines from the poem FRIEND SCOTT:

quick steps
on treadmill
reading book
on phone
big smile
listening to my poems

Webster leaves me with a big smile, too.
