Q&A with Tim Harris




Tim Harris is the author of the new children's picture book The Book of Hugs. He is a motivational speaker, disability advocate, and restaurateur.


Q: What inspired you to write The Book of Hugs?


A: I am famous for my hugs and I am excited to teach people, especially children around the world, how I hug. I want to inspire everyone to enjoy hugs as much as I do.


Q: What do you think Charlie Astrella's illustrations add to the book?


A: Charlie’s pictures add a lot of fun. They represent parts of my life that mean a lot to me and they make people laugh and make reading my book more enjoyable.


Q: What do you hope kids take away from the story?


A: I want kids to know that hugs make the world a better place and I want them to feel safe and loved. 


Q: What are you working on now?


A: I am helping an organization called Hearts of Joy raise money to help babies with Down Syndrome around the world who need heart surgery. 


We are preparing for a huge Hug-a-thon that will reach millions of people. We are planning a hug celebration in January for my birthday which is actually National Hugging Day!


Q: Anything else we should know?


A: I believe that hugs are the medicine to heal the world. Oh Yeah!
