“The Wonderful Adventures of Ozzie the Sea Otter, is to be celebrated by a hometown crowd in early December thanks to two wonderful hosts. SNAC; Sierra Nevada Adventure Company, and American Association of University Women. As well as a prolific artist, Stearns is an avid outdoor enthusiast and was employed by SNAC while going to Columbia Junior College. Now working on a Masters degree in illustration, he is a great example for those excelling in art and wanting to further their education and experience in university. In Murphys Ca, on Friday Dec. 4th from 5 to 9, in conjunction with the Holiday art parade, Stearns will be signing at SNAC. On Saturday the 5th, there will be a morning signing in Columbia with the University Women, and an afternoon signing at SNAC in downtown Sonora. The publisher Ron Andrews will be present at the signing with plenty of signed books to go around.” Quoted Press release.
