Meet-n-Greet with author Tyler Benson at McGulpin Point
Aug 28 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Emmet County Parks and Recreation is hosting a free Meet-and-Greet event at McGulpin Point Lighthouse on Saturday, August 28, from noon to 2 p.m., with author of the children’s book series The Adventures of Onyx. Tyler Benson, who lives with his family in St. Ignace, has served in the United States Coast Guard for over 18 years. He began writing short stories about his search and rescue adventures in the Coast Guard to educate his young children about what he does when he goes on duty for 48 hours at a time. He wanted them to learn the importance of service to their country and helping those in need. To help them better understand his job, Tyler wrote the stories featuring his station’s morale dog, Onyx. These stories soon evolved into a dream — to publish a book series that would serve as a tribute and a way to bring recognition to all who serve or have served in the United States Coast Guard. Check out the flyer for more information.
