Greta the Great Horned Owl Book Tour

September 20, 2019 (All day)

Join us for a very special book tour!

Christie Gove-Berg, author of Greta the Great Horned Owl, will be coming to Virginia September 20 - 22 for a book tour. This children's book is a true story of rescue and rehabilitation, featuring a former patient that was treated at the Wildlife Center of Virginia in 2016. 

Christie, director of outreach Amanda Nicholson, and one of the Center's non-releasable owl ambassadors will be traveling to several locations in the Shenandoah Valley and Charlottesville on Friday, September 20.

On Saturday, Christie will travel east to the Hampton Roads area, where the owl was originally rescued; Nature's Nanny Wildlife Rehabilitation will host Christie and at several events in that part of the state on September 21 and 22.  

Events include a variety of readings, book signings, and meet-and-greet opportunities. We hope you can join us!

Check back soon as we add more stops to the book tour.
