This renowned artist and author explores the joys of lessons of having “the dearest, funniest, lovingest, loyalist” of friends – a canine companion. Bob Morris joins her in conversation.
About Beloved Dog:
Maira Kalman’s style is instantly recognizable – from books like And the Persuit of Happiness and The Principles of Uncertainty, to her collaboration with Michael Pollan on illustrated Food Rules and her bestselling edition of Strunk and White’s The Elements of Style, her work is both joyful and wise.
In Beloved Dog Kalman takes her inspiration not only from the dog in her life (her beloved Irish Wheaton Pete) but the dogs she has encountered along the way. With wise words and whimsical pictures, Kalman celebrates the sage lesson animals teach us – that life reveals the best of itself when we live fully in the moment and extend unconditional love.
