Meet the Author: Smeagull the Seagull, a True Story

November 10, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Smeagull the Seagull, a True Story
Connecticut author (Mark Seth Lender) and illustrator (Valerie Elaine Pettis) will read and host a booking signing of their children’s picture book, Smeagull the Seagull, a True Story, on November 10, 2018  from 11AM -1PM at Breakwater Books, 81 Whitfield Street, Guilford, CT 06437.

Smeagull is a wild herring gull and this is indeed a true story.

Smeagull the Seagull comes to the house near the shore and knocks on the sliding glass door. He knocks when he’s hungry, and the people who live there feed him scraps (from sustainable fish, of course!). Smeagull rules the roost, and keeping up with his schedule is an exhausting job but when Smeagull disappears, it makes clear what an important family member Smeagull the Seagull has become.

Smeagull the Seagull teaches young children that animals are precious and have needs and feelings and family, just like us. There are few places on earth without seagulls, both on shore and inland, and every child will find Smeagull captivating and yet familiar.
