BAR HARBOR — It’s logical to start each day with a kiss and a smile on your face — that’s just one of the conclusions drawn by Somesville author Jennifer Skiff in her new book, “The Divinity of Dogs: True Stories of Miracles Inspired by Man’s Best Friend.”

She’ll share her insights, answer questions and sign books at the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, Nov. 9 beginning at 6 p.m. Sherman’s book store will provide copies for sale.

“The Divinity of Dogs” is a collection of tales from people from around the world who have encountered the divine through their dogs; in it you’ll meet Little Bit, the Chihuahua who detected a small lump in her owner’s breast; and Emma, the Rottweiler who prevented his owner from committing suicide; Princess, who alerted her owner of a fire; and many others that provided comfort to their owners in times of trouble.

Skiff is an award-winning television producer, journalist, and author.
