Local Author To Discuss New Book At WTPL

On Thur., Oct. 27 at 7 p.m., Washington Township Public Library in Long Valley is set to welcome Long Valley resident Kim Kavin for a talk on her new book “The Dog Merchants: Inside the Big Business of Breeders, Pet Stores, and Rescuers.” After her talk, Kavin will offer a book signing.
Readers may remember Kavin from her 2012 book, “Little Boy Blue,” which was featured on CNN and helped end the use of a gas chamber in a North Carolina shelter. “The Dog Merchants” was published in May and has already inspired changes to dog-related legislation that is now being debated in Trenton and that would affect the whole state. If enacted, the changed wording that was introduced because of “The Dog Merchants” will require rescue groups throughout New Jersey to be licensed for the first time in state history. The book also inspired the introduction of new “puppy mill” legislation in Colorado in early September.
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is requested. To sign up, visit wtpl.org or call the library at 908-876-3596.
