Author Signing: Jeffray Kessler, Colantha: World Champion Cow

WHEN: Saturday, August 27, 12:00 to 2:00 pm

WHERE:  Horizon Books, Traverse City, Michigan

Out at the state hospital (now The Village Commons) in the 1920’s there was a farm operation that included crops and livestock. A Holstein named Colantha was crowned the world champion then because of the amount of milk she gave and the number of calves she bore. She is OUR champion! There is a monument in her honor.

Each spring we celebrate Colantha, and 2016 will mark her 100th birthday. A new book, written by local author Jeffray Kessler will tout Colantha’s place in history with an endearing tale of historic fiction, sure to capture the hearts and imaginations of early readers.
