From the green countryside of England and the gray canyons of Wall Street come two unlikely heroes: one a pigeon and the other a soldier. A saga of hope and duty, Cher Ami and Major Whittlesey is a tragic yet life-affirming war story. Inspired by true events of World War I, author Kathleen Rooney resurrects two long-forgotten yet unforgettable figures, recounting their tale in a pair of voices that will change the way readers look at animals, freedom, and even history itself.To register for this webinar, click HERE.
