Book Signings

Roberta will be launching her new book, Oscar The Herring Gull, in July 2010 and will be holding book signings in Nova Scotia and Alberta in conjunction with the launch.

August 5 , 2010, 2-4pm: Admiral Digby Museum, Digby, NS
August 14, 2010, 1-3pm: Mad Hatter Books, Annapolis Royal, NS

Children will be treated to a reading by the author where they will meet Oscar, a bold and adventurous Herring Gull, who befriends Grammie Sara, a caring woman in a small seaside town in Nova Scotia. His divebombing antics and charming personality quickly win her heart. When Oscar doesn’t show up for his daily feeding of scraps one day, Grammie Sara becomes very worried and fears the worst. She scours the beaches for weeks, listening for Oscar’s unique call but he is nowhere to be found. Will Grammie Sara find Oscar? Children can follow Grammie Sara as she searches for Oscar and learn why Herring Gulls are important sea birds. Oscar may even have a surprise for you!

Fall 2010: Westhills Indigo - Calgary, Alberta
