Join us for a special booksigning - and some Halloween fun - with Lisa Schmid, author of Ollie Oxley and the Ghost: The Search for Lost Gold! In Lisa's engaging middle-grade novel, twelve-year-old Ollie is moving – again. His mom is starting another new job, this time at the Bingham Theater in Granite City, California. Moving all the time means Ollie has struggled to make friends, but he quickly connects with a boy named Teddy. To Ollie's surprise, though, his first friend in town is a little more . . . unique than those he's made in the past. Teddy is a ghost. Befriending someone who lived during the famous California Gold Rush makes things interesting for Ollie. But when the school bully targets Ollie and it looks like the Bingham Theater might close, the stakes couldn't be higher. Can Teddy and Ollie save the day?
Lisa Schmid is an author, a stay-at-home mom, and a pug wrangler from Folsom, California - home of the 1849 Gold Rush. Join us for a Halloween craft and treats, and a chance to meet the author, on Saturday, October 26th, from 1:30-3 pm! What better time for a ghostly tale?
