Author Allison Crotzer Kimmel (Russo's)
Join Russo's for the book launch of Bakersfield author Allison Crotzer Kimmel's new childrens picture book, The Eternal Soldier.
Friday, May 10 from 4pm to 7pm at the showroom of Russo's Books in Bakersfield.
This is the untold story of Sallie, a dog whose life as a soldier began in a basket and ended as a Civil War hero.
The pup barked and nearly tumbled out of the basket. We laughed, and immediately we knew--she was one of us already.
Brindle fur with streaks of brown and black swirled all over her like a patchwork quilt. She was as pretty as an apple tree in full bloom.
