Chapters - Dorval Crossing


On Sunday, May 28, from 1 to 4 pm, Oakville children’s author Tina Powell will be on hand to sign books at Chapters, Dorval Crossing. Powell’s popular picture book collection includes Hi! I Am the New Baby, Samantha’s Silly-icious Sandwiches, Fernando’s Fun-tastic Friends and most famously, Freddy and the Blue Jays – featuring the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Club. She also will be signing copies of her book for adult readers, Picnic in Pisticci – a gift book filled with entertaining picnic stories, recipes, images, and cartoons.

Powell returned to her beloved Oakville last year after spending eight years in Vancouver, BC. “There’s no place like home and no place I’d rather be,” said Powell. “Both my children were born at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. Oakville is where my heart is and is the perfect place to relaunch my books in Ontario.”

The author also tours extensively at elementary schools, preschools and summer day camps. She recently signed on with Peanut Butter Press who is republishing her children’s book collection in hardcover. Powell is currently writing a chapter book for 8 to 10 year olds and a novel for adult readers. She can be contacted through her website at
