The other day, during a long day at the office, I received a message from Samantha Hall-Saladino, the Education Director of the Shaker Heritage Society of Albany, New York. She had been working on a lecture on pets and contacted me to let me know how much she liked my book. Thanks, Samantha! It’s always nice to hear from a satisfied reader!
She also included this photograph of another satisfied reader, William. He lives at the Shaker Heritage Society and is clearly a cat of intellectual discernment. (William also has his own Twitter account at WilliamtheCat2.)
At any rate, I thought that the photo was so lovely that I could bend my rules a little bit. After all, William is clearly a history-lover.
