Dog Authors: A New Trend?

The last two book signings I attended were, in fact, paw signings.

Last Saturday Jag Schweitzer was signing his FIRST DOG (Farcountry Press 2007) at Bozeman's Country Bookshelf, A black-and-white border collie, prominent these days in the State Capitol of Helena, Jag was accompanied by his buddy Governor Schweitzer, who used the occasion to greet constituents and promote his bid for reelection. Jag assumed an independent air and schmoozed with his fans throughout the session, not allowing his dogship to be upstaged by the Gov. Author Jessica Solberg and illustrator Robert Rath were on hand to add a sketch along with their signatures, and Schweitzer, not to be outdone appended his own pawprint to the historic dogument.

A month ago I was a panelist at the Billings book fair. For me, a highpoint of the festivities was Tess Kahn's presentation of her new book, TRAINING PEOPLE: HOW TO BRING OUT THE BEST IN YOUR HUMAN (Chronicle Books 2007) A black labrador rectreiver, Tess of Helena as her nom de plume describes her, gave an admirable performance before a select audience. Her insight into human behaviour, its foibles and pitfalls, was quite hilarious. I rather wickedly asked her to sign a book for my cat Mimi, a first for her, which presented a small quandary, since Tess's intentions towards the species makes the U.S. military's routing of Al Queda seem like cats play.

Despite calls in the Twin Cities to bench Donovan McNabb, the Vikings won be, uh, throwing Christian Ponder to the Lions, who are favored in Minnesota for the first time in three decades That's all that really matters As we all know, American football emphasize physical confrontation, but this is not the essence of football campaign Otherwise, the number has been revered and reserved in CincinnatiB Against the Chicago Bears, he caught a pass and ran out of bounds to stop the clock with only 1 second left in the game to allow a Jason Elam 48 yard field goal to defeat the Bears Working with a freelancer means that you only deal with one person (the translator) for the entire project
