Dog Ears Bookstore to Host Author Cathleen Lang

Dog Ears Bookstore to Host Author Cathleen Lang

Cathleen J. Lang, author of My Little Light, will visit Dog Ears Bookstore & Café for a book-signing event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 26. Dog Ears is located at 688 Abbott Road in South Buffalo. 

My Little Light tells the bedtime routine of a happy, thankful little girl. As mom reads her a bedtime story and dad gives her a piggyback ride, she feels safe in the glow of her bedside lamp, her “little light.” Drifting off to sleep, she remembers all that she is thankful for. Whether it is read as a bedtime story or as a quiet evening prayer, My Little Light is enjoyable for the entire family. This story will remain in young hearts through each night and for a lifetime.
