TRUDY KRISHER DEBUTS NEW KIDS' BOOK

TUESDAY, MAY 12; 7 PM
TRUDY KRISHER
will introduce her new children’s picture book, An Affectionate Farewell: The Story of Old Bob and Old Abe. It is a wonderful introduction for young readers to the life of President Abraham “Old Abe” Lincoln and his faithful horse, Old Bob. They journeyed together across the wide open prairies, sharing good times and bad, hardships and rest. Throughout the book, we learn of President Lincoln’s love for animals and his dislike of cruelty to them as well as to humans. Observing slavery first hand as a young man, he was finally able to do something about it once he became president. Old Bob was with him from the beginning of this young lawyer’s memorable career to the very end “escorting his master on his final ride.” The book is illustrated by Bert Dodson. BUNKER HILL PUBLISHING
