Neal Parker Reads for Grown Up Story Hour at the Camden Public Library


On Friday, February 21, at 11:00 am the Camden Public Library welcomes author Neal Parker to read from his book, The Butcher’s Pig during the library’s weekly read-aloud program for adults.

Parker offers a preview of his curious story with this statement: "From his humble beginnings in the English countryside and with the sure sentence of death upon him, Horatio Mudd escapes to America. There he begins life anew and discovers unimaginable hardships and a society unable to accept his porcine heritage.” 

Neal Evan Parker was born in Brooklyn in 1956. As a teenager, while sailing the waters of New England, he became devoted to traditional sailing vessels. By the age of 20 he was a licensed captain and in the years that followed, Parker skippered over a dozen large schooners and historic craft. Despite struggling with dyslexia and constantly failing English in school, writing has been a lifelong passion.

In April 2005, Capt. Neal Parker traded his beloved schooner Wendameen for more time with his fast growing daughter. It was a more than equitable deal. Since that time Parker has devoted himself to sailing, writing and, of course, enjoying life as a full-time father.
