A new book by local authors and published by Ashland Creek Press premieres at a special event Sunday benefiting Jacksonville’s Sanctuary One animal sanctuary.

All proceeds from sales of Dana Feagin and Kat von Cupcake’s "Love Rhymes with Everything: Animal Ruminations Through Poetry & Paintings" from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26, at South Stage Cellars in Jacksonville will benefit Sanctuary One.

This collection of animal portraits and poetry is a collaboration among artist Feagin, poet von Cupcake, and the publisher; all have volunteered their time, skills, and resources to create a book intended to delight and entertain as well as benefit animal rescue organizations. Every penny from sales of "Love Rhymes with Everything" will go to help animals via rescue organizations in the Rogue Valley and beyond.
