Author Event: Alex Beard - Lying King Can warthogs fly? Do tigers eat broccoli? For answers, follow along as Warthog lies his way to the throne in this timeless, yet most timely, Tale from the Watering Hole. Will the Truth catch up with the king? Find out as Alex Beard’s whimsical animals come to life to illuminate real-world truths for children of all ages. With a nod to Aesop and Kipling, this funny and pointed parable has lessons for everyone, from the playground to the boardroom and beyond! Author Bio Alex Beard is a painter and author who has emerged as one of his generation’s most creative and successful artists. Alex studied art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts. He is also an adventurer. His extensive travels, and his desire to visit the world’s most untouched and often remote wildernesses have brought him on extended journeys through Africa, India, Australia, the Americas, and Asia. He is the author and illustrator of the critically-acclaimed Tales From the Watering Hole series of illustrated children’s picture books, of which THE LYING KING is the newest installment, as well as the creator of a unique series of puzzles for adults. In 2012, Alex founded the Watering Hole Foundation, a public charity created to help save endangered wildlife and the environments in which they live. His documentary film Drawing the Line chronicles the plight of the endangered Wild African Elephant as seen through the eyes of a conservationist artist. Alex lives in New Orleans with his wife, two children, two dogs, one cat, and a mess of other critters in the Garden District. Learn more at Can’t make the event? Want your own personalized copy?
