Bestselling author Sharyn McCrumb will talk about her newest installment in The Marvin Chronicles: The Life and Times of Feral Sam. Who is Feral Sam? He’s the mischievous nephew of Marvin, of course. He swears in Canadian French, has a passion for Little Debbie snack cakes, and is generally found in the vicinity of trouble. He’s a handful! Or rather, an armful. That’s because Marvin and Sam are both raccoons.
