The Cold War may be over, but the POTUS Pets series is just getting warmed up! You enjoyed spending time with Woodrow Wilson’s feisty, tobacco-chewing ram in last year’s Old Ike. On September 18, get ready to fall in love with Pushinka!
Follow the antics of Soviet transplant Pushinka as she enters the Kennedy White House at a time when the US and the USSR teetered dangerously close to nuclear war. See history from a dog’s-eye view–up close, personal, and full of curiosity! There’s humor, romance, joy, and tragedy in this dog’s tale.
Historian-in-residence Andrew Hager weaves Pushinka’s fascinating story into the pivotal foreign and domestic events of the early 1960s, offering a behind-the-scenes view of the Kennedy administration. Nora Sawyer’s charming artwork adds a perfect bit of Camelot-era style to the mix.
