Local Author and Illustrator Will Live Read Children’s Book in Rye 7/9

Written By: Robert Cox

NEW ROCHELLE, NY — Nick Vianna will read from his third picture book, Ten Tidal Tales, a series of short whimsical ocean stories told through Larry the pizza loving seagull and G, the little sea sprite with a big heart.

The reading will take place in Rye on Friday (7/9) at the Rye Town Park from 10 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

Using ocean symbols to communicate, the pair unite in friendship, fun and as pen pals, sharing their unique stories of fact and fiction from different corners of the world, above and below the surface.

Ten Tidal Tales is packed with colorful pictures, humor and whimsical verse and quirky, humorous and magical mysteries of the ocean.

As part of the book tour, Nick Vianna is offering elementary schools, libraries, bookstores, and fairs a free live/virtual read, with interactive word games and an art display presentation.

“I really love to engage the kids with questions during the live read and then demonstrate how creating a picture book uses some of the very same skills they are learning in school now –like spelling, word association, nature, visual communication, as well as arts and crafts, said Vianna
