The MacDowell Colony: Stephen Kuusisto's Current Home Away from Home

Any writer/artist lucky enough to stay at The MacDowell Colony is indeed very lucky.  Here, Steve Kuusisto and his guide dog, Nira, can do their best thinking.  Nira’s job is to provide inspiration as Steve works on his next book, tentatively titled “What a Dog Can Do”.
