The Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce has announced a partnership with local artist Shawn McLoughlin for the creation of a children’s book to be titled “ABC’s of Siesta Key.” The book will be 32 pages cover to cover featuring original artwork, illustrations and content.
“Siesta Shawn," as the locals call him, was the Chamber's first choice for this project. "He’s our favorite hometown artist, well-known and greatly respected in our community. No one knows how to capture the essence of Siesta Key better than Shawn. This is truly an exciting project,” said Ann Frescura, Executive Director of the Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber is offering a limited number of sponsorships to support the development and first run production of the book. For $500, sponsors will get their logo printed on the back cover, a signed copy of the book, and first-in-line opportunity to buy McLoughlin's original artwork used in the book.
The book will retail for $14.99 and is expected to be available for purchase October 2021. Proceeds will benefit the programs and services of the Chamber.
