Local author and former substance abuse school facilitator, Denise Surratt of Iron Station, has just released her first children’s book of the trilogy, The Cows at Honey Hill- Friends for Life. Book launch party is set for August 30, 2014 at the Lincoln Cultural Center at 1:00 pm. The book launch party will feature a live reading to a group of children, a “meet the author” table for book signings, media is invited.
An avid reader of books and a passionate advocate for children, Surratt decided to combine both loves to create an unusual tale of friendship, between two Abby’s: Abbie Taylor, the only daughter of Mom and Dad Taylor, and Abby Angus, the only heifer of the Angus cow family.
Understanding, acceptance and parental guidance are key themes in this brightly pictured book, and according to Surratt, are “much needed lessons in the society we live in.” Surratt is a natural born storyteller and often incorporates creative stories to illustrate concepts to her students as a certified facilitator within the local schools. Author of the well-received self reflection story, Pieces of Me, Ms. Surratt has recently been booked to read her latest offering at Iron Station Elementary School.
