)-- Miranda N. Prather, author of Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape, will attend The Gaithersburg Book Festival on May 20, 2017 at the Gaithersburg City Hall in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Prather will autograph and sell copies of her popular children's book, Blue Blue Sea Finds His Cape. Currently, Prather is at work on book two in the series.
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 2010, the Gaithersburg Book Festival's mission is to foster an interest in reading, writing and literary conversation. The Festival is one of the nation’s top literary events, attracting hundreds of award-winning and best-selling authors, poets and songwriters from across the country to its quaint, park-like setting in the heart of Olde Towne Gaithersburg.
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.
