We talk a lot about whether we should let the pigeon drive the bus in our family so I was thrilled to see Mo Willems artwork featured in a recent alumni news story from my college (I don't often read these closely so I feel lucky to have stumbled upon this).  Yale's Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library requested Willems to create a whimsical rendering of Pigeon in the style of John J. Audubon's "Birds of America".  Copies of the limited-edition poster are for sale, with net profits supporting New Haven Reads, a community resource center and literacy program in New Haven, Connecticut.
