Event description

Description

For Ages 4-7

Nancy will read her heartwarming tale about a beagle and the Duchess who adopted him, inspired by the true story of Meghan Markle and her rescue dog, Guy. Then lead some fun craft activities based on the book.

This rags-to-riches story of how one regal beagle got a second chance at life will charm and delight. When he was a pup, Guy was just like any dog in the shelter; he liked to bark and follow his nose, and dreamed of a forever home above all things. But when Guy met Meghan, he had no idea he was about to star in his own Cinderella story. Guy can now be spotted escorting Queen Elizabeth and frolicking in Buckingham Palace.

Nancy Furstinger has been speaking up for animals since she learned to talk--and she hasn't shut up yet. Nancy volunteers for an assortment of humane societies and rescue groups, and she has been a vegetarian since the age of 16. She is also the author of more than 100 books, including many on her favorite topic: animals! She started her writing career in third grade, and since then has been the feature writer for a daily newspaper, a managing editor of trade and consumer magazines, and an editor at two children's book publishing houses. She shares her home in New York with big dogs and house rabbits (all rescued), volunteers and fosters pets for several animal organizations, and is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
