A new children’s book by a Selma author and illustrator promotes seizure and epilepsy awareness and sends a strong anti-bullying message. 

The book “Zeeba and the Seizure” was written and illustrated by Meadowview Christian School and University of Montevallo graduate Michaela Barnes of Selma. 

The goal of the book, Barnes said, is to educate children and adults who do not have seizures to possibly save a life. It also encourages children with epilepsy.
