Giddy-up to Neighborhood Reads Bookstore to meet Willie, a beloved horse from Chris Stuckenschneider’s picture book, Twist of Fate, the Miracle Colt and His Friends. Chris will read her true-life story of hope about Willie, and other horses that were saved after a tractor trailer truck crashed on I-44. Twister’s mother was on the truck too, pregnant at the time with the miracle colt eventually named Twister. He’s now 15 years of age and lives at Longmeadow Rescue Ranch, outside Union, the ranch where many of the horses received care after the accident. Willie’s owner Kylee Matheny will also be at the bookstore to answer questions about Willie and talk about the incredible bond the two of them enjoy.
