Mt. Airy, MD, April 01, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Miranda N. Prather, author of "Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape," will attend Equine in the Vines on April 30, 2017 at Linganore Winecellars in Mt. Airy, Maryland. Prather will autograph and sell copies of her popular children's book, "Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape." The author will also donate an autographed copy for the Foxie G. Foundation to auction off and donate 20% of the proceeds for all sales of the book in the month of April to the Foxie G. Foundation.
"Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape," published by Shoofly View, tells the life story of a blue-collar racehorse who overcame a devastating illness to survive and inspire thousands around the globe who were facing their own struggles and illnesses. The book features playful writing and delightful pictures, by Kentucky artist Hayley Mullins, that bring the tale of Blue Blue Sea to life. Blue Blue Sea was no American Pharoah, but he became a hero just the same.
Miranda N. Prather was born in Texas and grew up in Mississippi, Louisiana and Kentucky. The first horse she recalls following was Seattle Slew, who was born the same year she was, but it was Alydar that was her first horse racing love (and Blue Blue Sea’s great-grandsire). During her time in Kentucky, she took horseback riding lessons and owned an off-track Thoroughbred named Beble.
Founded in 2012, the Foxie G. Foundation honors the memory of a special horse by rehabilitating, rehoming and offering a sanctuary for Thoroughbreds and cats. The Foundation was recently awarded the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance's Award of Merit for their outstanding work on behalf of thoroughbreds both off-the-track and those that have never raced. The need is always great with the good work being done at the Foxie G. Foundation, so one of their premier events is the Equines in the Vines Event at Linganore Winecellars. This year the event takes place on April 30, from 1 to 5 and all proceeds benefit the Foxie G. Foundation. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet Wilbur, one of the retirees at Foxie G.; have a session with a pet communicator and have wine tastings for those 21 and older.
Shoofly View seeks to give authors honest feedback, and if an author presents a well-written, interesting book, the chance at publication. In late 2015, they published Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape, their first book. They are currently looking at other book projects and plan an online journal to highlight the best in writing, art and photography.
