Ann Southcombe Book Signing
Saturday August 17 | 11:00AM - 2:00PM
Ann Southcombe's dedication and passion for animals has stretched over forty years and has taken her to the wilds of the Amazon, the undersea world of Hawaii, and the beautiful forested mountains of Oregon. During her career, she raised seven captive gorillas; she was the teacher to Michael, the companion of Koko, the gorilla; and to Chantek, the signing orangutan.
An early pioneer who provided enrichment for captive animals, her name belongs on the same list as Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Penny Patterson for the work she has done to raise awareness of the importance of our relationships to our "non-human kin."
Join us Saturday August 17th from 11:00AM-2:00PM for a book signing of TALES FROM GORILLA GIRL, Ms. Southcombe's touching memoir about the many animals she has shared her life with.

Book Signing with author J.J Welch
Saturday August 31 | 11:00PM - 2:00PM
J. J. Welch lives in the foothills of Oregon. He writes books, bakes cakes, listens to hours of music, and judges the decisions of his pets...harshly. More often than not, his characters speak for him.
His debut novel entitled Spectrum is a thrilling dystopian novel taking place in the one city remaining after the world collapsed, protected by a wall, controlled by a system.
It’s the system that feeds you, that protects you; it's the system that keeps life simple and clean. Without it, all would be lost.
But The City is under attack, their wall has been breached and traitors wander their streets.
In this exciting debut, Welch asks. What happens when you send a normal boy into exile with an enemy who has a score to settle? He learns to survive. He bows to the King and embraces chaos.
But he's a sheep in a wolf’s skin. And how can a sheep defeat an army of wolves?
Sure to be a favorite among science fiction fans and anyone who loves a well written story. Join us Saturday August 31, 2019 from 11AM until 2PM and meet this talented author.
