Out of the blue

Book signing at Serious Coffee

Roberta DeDoming promoting her new book Out of the Blue: Musings on Synchronicity

Long-time Comox Valley resident Roberta DeDoming will be at the loft-space of Serious Coffee (opposite the Driftwood Mall) on Saturday afternoon, May 14, 1-3:30 p.m. for a book-reading and drop-in book-signing.

In her newly published book Out of the Blue: Musings on Synchronicity, you can read about the clock that stopped when the author’s spouse died, the license plate that communicated a world of meaning, the Toyota salesman who unwittingly predicted a death, and other uncanny events that surrounded the death of her late life-partner, Gerry Goddard.  Roberta writes with poetic receptivity, skepticism, humour and honesty about how this constellation of unlikely occurrences shaped the way she experienced her loss.

After this event, Out of the Blue: Musings on Synchronicity will be available at Laughing Oyster Books or from the author.
