Linebaugh Public Library is pleased to host local author Sherry Roberts for a book signing on Wednesday, November 3, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. The author will be signing and selling copies of her book, Twas the Night Before Christmas: A First for Gus, which was published in August 2021.

Dreams do come true... even for a little shelter dog named Gus.

It's the night before Christmas and Gus just can't sleep. He lives in a shelter and longs for a home of his very own. Suddenly, he hears a loud noise and looks outside to find Santa Claus. As they ride off into the night sky together Gus has no idea what surprises their trip will bring. Twas the Night Before Christmas: A first for Gus, a play on the original poem and the first in a five-book series, is a wonderfully furry tale about a curious basset hound that is about to receive the best Christmas gift of all.

Sherry Roberts has had two basset hounds, Princess and Samantha. Samantha was one of three sisters that belonged to her brother's family and sister's family. When her nieces and nephew were little, she loved to make up stories. Now she enjoys writing stories for others to read. She holds a graduate degree from the University of Louisville in curriculum and instruction. She has taught middle school, high school, and college business classes. She was instrumental in developing technology camps during the summer for elementary students. Sherry now lives in Middle Tennessee with her rescue dog named Gizzie.

Sherry will be selling copies of her book for $24/each for the hard copy. Paperbacks will be  $17/each, if available by the time of the book signing. Cash and checks accepted.
