Snowball the Dancing Cockatoo with Sy Montgomery & Judith Oksner

Join Hancock author Sy Montgomery, Hancock artist Judith Oksner and Hancock publisher Sarah Bauhan to celebrate publication of SNOWBALL THE DANCING COCKATOO, a new book for children in grades 4-8. It's the true story of how an unwanted parrot became a You Tube sensation, a television star and the subject of new studies of music and the brain--all by rocking out to his favorite tunes. Come watch hilarious video of Snowball dancing at home, on Letterman and with panels of scientists; then Sy and Judith will read from their new book and discuss their fun collaboration with Sarah. Copies of the new book will be on hand for sale and signing. All author's proceeds benefit the parrot rescue where Snowball lives. Free and open to all! Families with children 8 and up are encouraged to attend.
