Then at 1:30pm, the author will share her novel, filled with humor and heart, which is suggested for ages 8 – 12. In The Someday Birds, Charlie’s father is sent to Virginia for medical treatment. Charlie reluctantly takes a road trip from California, with his family, to visit his father. Charlie decides that if he can spot all the birds that he and his father were hoping to see someday, along the way, then everything might just turn out all right. Join in a guided bird walk after the talk! Co-presented with Boswell Book Company. Books will be available for purchase and signing. This event is handicap accessible.
