Author event with Sarah Heneghan, Alana Mills & Madeline Sturgeon, authors of Life Lessons from a Sloth

Busy humans have got a lot to learn from the slow-moving sloth. You may find that all the wisdom, humor, and insight you need can be taught by the steady, smiling creatures you never expected.

Life Lessons from a Sloth is a quirky and heartfelt collection of philo-sloth-ical suggestions for slowing down, savoring life, and appreciating the extraordinary world around us. Sloths have got the hang of it—and now you can too!

Sarah Heneghan is an avid bread- and pastry-baker, and amateur Assyriologist, and a 70s-80s pop music enthusiast. She is currently raising a sourdough starter named Henry on her kitchen counter. Though she remains a staunch Chicagoan at heart, Sarah currently lives in Nashville with her husband and their two cats. 

Alana Mills is a coffee addict and arts enthusiast who only recently discovered her love of sloths, and now she is obsessed. She spent the first 18 years of her life in the sunny deserts of Southern California until she moved across the country to go to school in North Carolina. When not working in the publishing world, she enjoys old school film photography, wrangling her uncooperative papillons, and traveling to see Renaissance art in its natural habitat. Despite her lack of musical talent, she currently lives with her two dogs in Nashville, where she is still on the hunt for authentic Mexican food and the perfect brunch.

Madeline Sturgeon is a journalism and psychology graduate who now spends her days in the world of book publishing. She loves poetry, sweet tea, true-crime documentaries, and swimming in the ocean. She currently resides in Nashville, but has lived all over the world, and misses Dublin and Chicago in particular.
