Red Bud Public Library to host Cassandra Smith and “Santa Paws”

The Red Bud Public Library is happy to welcome Cassandra Smith and her service dog Pharaoh for a special event on Saturday, Dec. 9 from 10:30 a.m. until noon.

Smith will read from her new book, “The Adventures of Pharaoh, the Service Dog: My Journey to Become a Service Dog.” Limited copies of the book will be available at the event, but they can also be purchased in advance at Barnes & Noble, Amazon or other book stores.

Pharaoh will “sign” books at the event. Attendees can also get pictures taken with Pharaoh, who will be dressed as “Santa Paws.”

For more information about the event, please contact the library at 282-2255.
