Meet the Author: Carrie Seim

Tuesday, April 6, 2021
5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Seventh-grader Wills is excited to start training at the prestigious Oakwood Riding Academy, but between the #HorseGirls posse icing her out of their club, learning the reins of horse riding, and dealing with her air force pilot mom being stationed abroad, Wills discovers it is not easy to become a part of #HorseGirlWorld.

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 the Author

Carrie is the author of the new acclaimed middle-grade novel Horse Girl 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.
