Tim Maceyko Book Signing

The 2016 Marion Popcorn Festival Crafts/Community/Commercial welcomes Tim Maceyko, author of Seth’s Snuggle Time Game, which honors his son, Seth.

On March 20, 2013, Tim’s life was turned upside down by the death of his son.  This tragic moment in his life caused him to reevaluate everything he thought he knew about life; thus inspiring him to write Seth’s Snuggle Time Game.  Mr. Maceyko will be in the Craft/Community/Commercial area Friday evening, September 9, and Saturday, September 10, from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m.

Seth’s Snuggle Time Game will be sold in the Crafts/Community/Commercial area during Tim’s book signing times at the festival, as well as wristbands, decals and shirts that go along with the message of Snuggle Time.   The book is also available for purchase at www.sjthemonkey.com.

If you’d like more information on the Maceyko’s story, please check out their Facebook page, In Memory of Seth James Maceyko, which was created by a relative after Seth’s death.  To this day, they continue to use this as a way to remember their son and keep his message alive.
