Animal lovers and book lovers from all around the greater Red Bank Green know Kim Levin as the Little Silver-based picture-book creator (and self-described “phoDOGrapher”) whose many book bylines include Cattitude and Why We Love Dogs. Her images have appeared worldwide on everything from calendars to cocktail napkins; in People magazine and Modern Dog; and on her own line of Molly & Fig greeting cards and gift items.
The professional purr/pooch portraitist — who in 2014 documented her travels across Iditarod country in a Monmouth County Library exhibit entitled Alaska: Landscapes and Dogs from the Last Frontier — is back on her home turf, doing what she does best, and finding time Sunday afternoon to “paws” in Red Bank for an appearance keyed to one of her pet causes.
Levin will be present at the Paws for a Cause kiosk inside the Galleria building on Bridge Avenue from 1 to 4 pm for a book-signing that celebrates not one but two new titles in her fast-growing catalog: Pack Mentality and Cat-panions.
Just out last month from Brownlow Gifts, the books will be available for purchase during the event, with a portion of proceeds dedicated to the benefit of the Save US Pets Foundation (a nonprofit founded by employees of Red Bank Veterinary Hospital) and its mission of helping the community to give pets a chance at living full and happy lives.
