Island visitor's book on sale
Kristen Calenda’s new illustrated children’s book “Nubiana: A True Story About A Very Special Kitty” (published by AuthorHouse) is the inspirational true story of how a disheveled and unwelcome cat changes the life of her unexpected new guardians, true non-lovers of cats.
Calenda has visited the island since she was a child, and in recent years has brought her cats to the island with her, even taking the three of them, in a stroller, to visit the Abrams Animal Farm. The Island Free Library hosted a reading by Calenda last week, attended by Oscar, her hug-giving cat. The book is now available on Amazon for $13.99, where you can also view a few pages of the book. Kristen can be contacted thru her web page at www.kristencalenda.com
A native Rhode Islander, Calenda lives in Warwick with her husband and three cats. Using 50 percent of the profits from the sales of this book, her goal is to fund various animal rescue groups, both great and small.
