But Myra Ethman, co-owner of another pet product store, hates the competition, insisting she'll find a way to shut the place down. When Myra is found dead with a Barkery biscuit beside her, Carrie must prove she didn't do it before she's collared for murder.

How To Tell Your Story
Crowell Public Library, Sunday, February 28 at 2pm
Most people who have had a job interview, given a speech, or simply sat around a campfire, have probably told a story at some point in their lives. Whether that story was engaging, or delivered the message they intended, might be another issue. At this fun two-hour workshop participants will learn that telling a story can be a way to organize their thoughts and deliver their message successfully.

The fundamentals of storytelling can be applied to any media format with any theme. For example, How to Tell Your Small Business Story or How to Tell Your Family History, Moses and the 10 Commandments, My Dream of Coming to America, How I Won an Olympic Gold Medal... the sky’s the limit. Participants will get hands-on practice writing the story as well as putting it into action. At the end of the session, they will create and deliver their own one minute story. Storytellers can find a wide range of uses for these skills including: delivering a speech, improving English language skills, writing a magazine article, preparing for a job interview, creating a movie treatment, or telling that bedtime or campfire story.

Harris Gaffin has been a professional photojournalist his entire adult life. Based mostly in Paris, his stories have been internationally syndicated and published in the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe and the International Herald-Tribune. He’s written and produced documentaries for cable television. He’s given workshops on photography and lectures on American history.
