Join Carol Steingreaber at the Van Horne Public Library on the 1st September 2017 for a book reading and signing.

In her first autobiography, Pants Optional, Carol Steingreaber offers a hilarious, unrestricted insight into her life thus far in Iowa, USA. The reader is a privileged passenger on the journey, invited to buckle up for the ride as Carol shares her stories from the sibling squabbles of childhood, to cringeworthy dating moments, marriage and various stages of motherhood. Her witty, "tell-it-straight" writing style conjures up images you can't help but laugh at, often accompanied by photos that speak a thousand (usually comical) words.

Carol provides the reader with "UNconventional tips" on a whole range of themes such as housework and hospitals, illness and injury, Nerf guns and nudity, safety concerns and sex, friendship, faith and a great many more. Moments of eternal embarrassment are interspersed with flashes of comic/parenting genius, and every reader will find a nugget or three (or twenty!) to inspire them

‘Parrot was very angry indeed. He was also very wet. Although he had heard the cry to abandon ship, and had even seen the sailors jumping into the lifeboat, before he could jump in too, the huge, towering wave swept him spluttering and squawking over the side.' After this dramatic start, Parrot, a bird who has forgotten how to fly having spent most of his life on perches or human shoulders, has to learn how to survive in a wide open and at times dangerous sea. But he is not alone, a handful of other animals share his shipwrecked fate and place their trust in him to see them through.

'Parrot Takes Command' is a delightful book full of adult relationship themes covered at a child's level. It is funny, a little dangerous and is beautifully illustrated.

Sue Pepper, author of 'Life After Death', will be at Sittingbourne Library on Friday 8th September discussing her new book.

Sue will be available for book signings and to answer any questions you may have. She will also be doing a reading from 'Life After Death'.

Always energetic – hockey at school, badminton, swimming – Sue Pepper didn’t realise something was going wrong with her body until her late thirties when periods of tiredness became unusually long. Symptoms began to include muscle spasms and pins and needles in her limbs forcing her to give up her passion for badminton and restricting her to line judging at major tournaments.

Sue Pepper’s autobiographical telling of the onset of multiple sclerosis and living with the consequences is at once inspiring and yet at the same time frustrating as gradually her powers of mobility are reduced. With the onset of a disease like MS the nature of friendships and work relationships have to be re-evaluated and wholesale changes must be faced in life. For fellow sufferers of MS, Sue Pepper’s story is one of courage as she adapts to her limitations and successfully takes her swimming to the level of the National Championships.
