Scott Fisk, an artist and chair of Samford’s Department of Art, and his wife, Timarie, an author, have found the time in recent months to create a children’s book with a very specific focus on Birmingham. Fuzzy Finny’s Adventures in the Magic City traces the journey of Fuzzy Finny throughout Birmingham, visiting many of our local landmarks. I’ll admit that I have not read the book, but apparently Fuzzy Finny leads children toward a very tranquil sleep. I may try to obtain a copy and ask Jeanna to read it to me tonight.
Incidentally, ten percent of the proceeds from the sale of the book will be used to provide scholarships for students in the arts in Alabama.
The world is better because of the creativity of Samford’s faculty members—and their creative spouses.
