J. D. Taylor, will be in attendance at the Ellen Coolidge Burke Branch, Alexandria Library for a book discussion of ‘Beauregard: Canine Warrior’.

The book talk is the perfect addition to the campaign, ‘All Alexandria Reads Initiative’, which is honoring dog heroes this year.

The book revolves around Beauregard, a loyal Doberman Pinscher who is both brave and intelligent. He is part of an army unit that is inside Vietnam for a mission. The dog alerts the unit of incoming danger but they don’t pay any heed to the warnings, and end up paying the price.

The story shows how important military dogs are when they are performing their duties. They put their lives in danger to keep their handlers and units safe.

The author has spent time in the army and that shows in his style of writing, which is authentic in every way.
