Tucker and Zoey Adventures with Christian Bensing and Timothy Feather
October 29 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm EDTFree
Bring the kids to libra and the love and joy they bring families. Lehigh Valley authors Christian Bensing and Timothy Feather will be on hand to tell stories and sign copies of their book.
Tucker and Zoey Adventures is all about celebrating rescue pets and the love and joy they bring us as members of our families. Each of our stories is based on the fun and sometimes wacky “adventures” of actual rescues who have impacted our lives. We hope our stories inspire people to give more animals a second chance at a happy life in a loving home.
I am an author, writing teacher, and library media specialist as well as a proud fellow with the Lehigh Valley chapter of the National Writing Project. A writer my entire life, I never thought much about writing books for children until my daughter was born. From that day on, I read to her every day, rekindling a personal love and appreciation of children’s books. I quickly remembered how wonderful, powerful, and entertaining children’s books can be. A popular topic for storytelling in my family has always been the interesting exploits of our rescue dogs, which have inspired me to write a fun, humorous books for families that share positive messages about empathy, change, patience, trust, sibling rivalry, handling change, etc. Together with Tim Feather, illustrator and my great friend for over 35 years, I enjoy offering children stories they will want to hear over and over again. I live a blessed life with my family of humans and canines in Nazareth, PA.
I am an illustrator, a graphic artist, a web designer, a husband, a father, a son, a brother… I live in rural Pennsylvania with my wife, our boy/girl twins, and our dog Gabriel. We own a small graphic and web design company that affords me the flexibility to also illustrate children’s books. The creation of the Tucker and Zoey Adventure Series with my good friend and author, Christian Bensing has been a joy.
“From the time I could hold a crayon, I have been drawing. My brother was my first teacher. We would draw cars and trains, and people and animals. There was an honest simplicity to those drawings. Over the years, I spent my teens and twenties trying to render subjects with precision and accuracy. Upon having children, I was reunited with the simplicity and beauty of children’s books. My journey back to illustrating children’s books has been a wonderful joy for me and my hope is that my drawings bring joy to all who see them.”
