Jennifer Rae Trojan of West Chicago, author of "Kessen's Kronikles: The Adventures of a Cross Country Canine," will be joined by the title character at a signing in The Book Store in Glen Ellyn. In the book, Kessen tells his own story as a potential service dog whose journey is interrupted by an automobile accident. He relives his life in flashbacks that change his future.

The event runs from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 20, in The Book Store, 475 Main St. For more information, contact the shop at 630-469-2891 or

Trojan raises puppies intended to become service dogs, and counts on Kessen for help.

In a recent feature on her and the book, she says, "I have to put in a lot of work with the dogs, but only other dogs can teach each other certain things."
