Rita Moir kicks off a month of book signings at Otter Books this Saturday when she will have copies of her latest book The Third Crop available.

Abundance of book signings

Leaves are falling, snow has frosted the mountain tops, fireplaces are glowing and books are waiting to be read.

Leaves are falling, snow has frosted the mountain tops, fireplaces are glowing and books are waiting to be read. Otter Books doesn’t have a real fireplace, but they do have a comfy chair that will be hosting a different local author each Saturday for the month of November. From 1 to 3 p.m. these accomplished authors will be ready, pen in hand, to sign a copy (or three) of their book and answer questions.

Rita Moir will be the first on November 5. Her latest book The Third Crop is a personal and insightful look into the lives and histories of those living in the Slocan Valley from the 1800s to the early 1940s.

Anne DeGrace will be there on November 12, with her book Flying with Amelia which spans 100 years and the breadth of Canada.

The author for November 19 has yet to be confirmed.

November 26 will be Frances Welwood. Her new book Passing through Missing Pages is a look into the intriguing life of Annie Garland Foster.

Shelley Adams will also be in the store on Friday, November 24 to put her signature on as many of her cookbooks as she’s able.

Not only will you be walking away with great gifts (hello Christmas shopping) but they’ll have that added bonus of being signed by the author.
