Join us for an online, interactive conversation with author Joy McCullough and illustrator Sheyda Abvabi Best, to discuss their new book, Champ and Major: First Dogs, a picture book about President-elect Joe Biden’s two adorable dogs.

The virtual event will include a live reading of the book by children’s author, Joy McCullough, dog sketching by the book’s Kansas City based illustrator, Sheyda Abvabi Best, and highlight pets available for adoption through DHA. Animal lovers of all ages will want to hear all about Champ, who is excited to go back to the White House, and Major, who will be the first shelter dog to live in the White House! McCullough’s book, published by Penguin Random House, highlights Champ and Major’s journey to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The book’s whimsical illustrations are an added delight!
