Roara's Story @ North

Meet Marley, the creator and author of "Hello Roara!"

Marley and her father, Josh, collaborated to create a delightful tale about a dinosaur, and are coming to North Branch to teach you how you, too, can be an author!

Come out, hear Roara's story, make your own picturebook, check out some real fossils, and get a toy!

This event made possible by a generous gift by the Mary Jo and Nello Pace Trust, and in collaboration between North Branch and the Bone Room.
