NEWPORT — A new children’s book titled “Rescued,” based on a true story of mutual rescue between a dog and his owners, kicks off with events at Northeast Kingdom libraries today. The book’s author, Tanya Sousa from North Troy, and illustrator Marcia Blanco from Burlington, will host the first event at Cobleigh Library at 4:00 p.m. and the second at Goodrich Memorial Library at 6:30 p.m. in Newport.

“Rescued” narrates the touching tale of Simba, a shelter dog who becomes a hero to her adoptive family. During the events, Sousa and Blanco will conduct readings, handle book sales and signings, and discuss their experiences in writing and illustrating.

Sousa has penned several children’s books, including “Fairy Feast” and “Tossing Stars.” “Rescued” marks Blanco’s debut in children’s book illustration, adding to her portfolio of drawings focused on veterinary and scientific themes.

A portion of the proceeds from the book sales, specifically one dollar from each hardcover sold, will support the Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Society Shelter in Orleans.

Future events for “Rescued” are scheduled throughout the spring and summer, featuring a notable collaboration with the St. Johnsbury Atheneum and Dog Mountain on June 28. Further details on these events will be announced in the coming weeks.
