Local author to donate book proceeds to 4-H project

RELEASE DATE: April 23, 2009

TAVARES — The Lake County Agricultural Center, located at 1951 Woodlea Road in Tavares, is currently selling books written by local author Lowell Teal and is donating half of the proceeds to the 4-H citrus project.

A native Floridian, Teal was born into a citrus and cattle family. After graduation from the University of Florida, his career began with an international agricultural marketing association representing citrus growers and other producers nationwide. Teal has penned four novels: “Bath Pond,” “Fortunes Crossing,” “Inherited Journey” and “Promise to Poppy.” According to his Web site (www.lowellteal.com), he wrote the books after observing people and personal experiences during a lifetime of working within corporate America. While all four books are fiction, they are also self-help books written with a fictional storyline.

The four novels are available for purchase (cash or check only) at the Lake County Agricultural Center for $14.95 each in softcover or $24.95 each in hardcover.
Half of the proceeds from the book sales will benefit the 4-H citrus project, which helps to increase awareness about the Central Florida citrus industry. Citrus growers, processors, packers and other support industries purchase citrus trees for Children with the 4-H program to learn about the citrus industry as well as complete a record book of their tree’s care.

For more information about the Lowell Teal books for sale at the Lake County Agricultural Center, call Maggie Jarrell at (352) 343-4101.
