St. Louis County Library is pleased to present local author Justine Riggs for a discussion and signing of her book, "Love Dogs Must Travel" on Monday, June 10 at 7:00 p.m. at the Daniel Boone Branch, 300 Clarkson Raod in Ellisville.
The Show Me State is a patchwork of rich history, river cities, eclectic dining, unique lodging, wineries, and festivals along with some of the best parks and trails in the country for canine travelers. "Love Dogs, Must Travel" by Justine Riggs is a guide to the pick-of-the-litter places for puppy play, overnight accommodations, pet-friendly eateries, attractions and activities worth your time, and even some of those that aren't. In addition, you'll find pointers for preparing for travel with your pooch and some interesting facts to note along the way. Find out where your pup can visit historical furry friends like Jim the Wonder Dog, Old Drum, and Seaman or participate in events specifically catering to pooches like the Canine Cannonball, the Mardi Gras pet parade, or a professional baseball game where he can howl for the homers. Whether exploring hidden gems off the beaten path or the bones right in front of your nose, this book is Missouri's best guide to puppy-approved places and events.
Justine Riggs lives in St. Charles with her husband, daughter, and four rescues. Her two Weimaraners, Harlie and Kaia, inspired her to write this book. Justine loves to travel and volunteers her time to local charities, including those involving animal welfare and rescue.
