Katherine Schwarzenegger at DIESEL, A Bookstore in BrentwoodDIESEL, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Katherine Schwarzenegger back to the store to sign her new picture book, Maverick and Me on Sunday, October 1st at 3:00 pm.  This will be her publication party and all are welcome to attend. October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, what a great way to start it off!

Dog lover and animal advocate Katherine Schwarzenegger draws from her own experience with fostering and adopting dogs to create a picture book that introduces children to the concept of "adopt, don't shop". In the heartwarming story of Maverick and Me, Maverick is rescued by a kind-hearted stranger after being dumped on the side of the road. The little puppy's luck takes a turn for the better when young Scarlett meets him at an adoption event. Scarlett is so moved by Maverick's story that she and her mother decide to give him the forever home he is looking for.

Each year, millions of dogs find themselves in shelters and with animal rescues through no fault of their own. Maverick will help teach children about these dogs and empower even young readers to advocate for shelter pups.

Katherine Schwarzenegger is a New York Times bestselling author, lifestyle blogger, philanthropist, and animal activist. She began fostering puppies in her home in Southern California and soon fell in love with one special little foster dog named Maverick.Together, Maverick and Katherine spread a message of hope, defying all odds, and the joys of finding forever friends through pet rescue.
