Join us Sunday, September 30th, noon-1:30 pm to celebrate the publication of Julie Samrick's wonderful middle-reader novel, Murphy's Miracle: One Dog's Wild Journey - and meet Murphy the dog!
In 2012, the Braun family's beloved golden retriever, Murphy, went missing near Lake Tahoe. In 2014, she had yet to return. Her family searched relentlessly - then one day, after they left her old dog bed and family clothing at the campground where she'd been lost, Murphy was found sleeping on the items.
After journalist Julie Samrick wrote an article about Murphy's return, she couldn't get the dog off her mind. How did Murphy survive for so long? The result - Murphy's Miracle, a novel for young readers.
Julie has been writing professionally for the past decade. You may recognize her name from articles in the El Dorado County newspapers Mountain Democrat and Village Life. Drop by to meet the author and Murphy, the wonderful dog who survived for so long on her own!
