Pet Animal Welfare Society of Norwalk will hold a free story time for children at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, at Barnes & Noble, 1076 Post Road East.

Wendy Rosa Humphries, a writer, adoption advocate, animal rights activist and dog couture designer, will read "What About Daisy?" a story about a dog born deaf and blind by author Maryam Faresh, according to a release.

Humphries will discuss what to do when a stray animal approaches, where to bring them when they show up on one's doorstep, who to notify and other related topics. She will also talk about the pets available for adoption at the society, the release states.
