Author Jeff Waters Book Signing Event

Author Jeff Waters, a resident of Fairfax, will be available to sign copies of his book, “The Adventures of Cover Girl Katie,” on Saturday, Nov. 9, 1-3 p.m. at Saxbys Coffee, 10637 Braddock Road, Fairfax.

Dog people know that every rescue dog is a special case—but every dog is worth rescuing.

When an overwhelmed Great Pyrenees rescue worker is faced with an impossible placement, she reaches out to the only people she knows she can trust to save the beautiful dog: Jason and Nadine.

When the big dog arrives at Jason's house, she takes a new name—Katie—and a new course in life. After a whirlwind of activity, Katie finds herself in the advertising world with the highest “Q” rating in the industry. She and her alpha, Jason, quickly find that hiding Katie's special abilities while still changing the world is nothing to bark at.

“The Adventures of Cover Girl Katie” will keep you howling as Katie, Jason, Nadine and a team of animals and humans work to make the world a better place.
