The Children’s Library is pleased to announce that Darien resident Carrie Seim will join Darien Library for a virtual event that can be enjoyed from the comfort of home on Tuesday, April 6 at 5:30 p.m.
Horse Girl is a funny and heart-warming novel that will delight middle school readers from fans of Black Beauty to anyone who appreciates a story about finding yourself (and your true friends) along the way.
Author Carrie Seim will read an excerpt of her brand-new novel at our virtual visit, followed by a Q&A session and a crafty opportunity for any equestrian enthusiasts in the virtual audience who would like to pick up the project materials in advance.
We will be giving away free signed copies of Horse Girl to the first 25 attendees of the event.
About Carrie Seim
Carrie is the author of the new acclaimed middle-grade novel HORSE GIRL (Penguin Random House) and the bestselling Audible adventure series THE FLYING FLAMINGO SISTERS (hailed by the New York Times as a Best Audiobook for Road Trips with Kids).
She’s served as a staff writer for Nickelodeon and you can hear her voice in several audiobooks, animated series and commercials — where she’s played everything from an evil robot to a sassy pickle.
An alum of Northwestern University and The Groundlings comedy theatre, Carrie has appeared on Inside Amy Schumer, E! TV, and the Today Show.
She grew up writing plays and riding horses with her sister, author and actress Lindsay Seim, in the windswept plains of Nebraska.
