Author to share horses perspective
Next week, Airdrie Public Library (APL) will be hosting a historical journey, as seen through the eyes of a horse.
On Nov. 8 from 7 to 9 p.m., to wrap up our 2013 Adult Author Series, Susan Raby-Dunne will be sharing the story of her book, Bonfire, the Chestnut Gentleman: The true story of John McCrae’s journey through WWI, as told by his war horse, Bonfire.
Raby-Dunne has a fascination with the First World War, and in particular Lt.-Col. John McCrae, the Canadian physician who penned the famous poem In Flanders Fields. In Bonfire, she tells the story of the bond between a soldier and his horse, and the war that shaped a generation.
