Local author Barbara Walsh will present her book “The Lobster Lady: Maine’s 102-year-old Legend” at a book signing from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 12 at the Jefferson Market & General Store. She will also be available to sign copies of her four other books.

“The Lobster Lady” is an inspiring story about the oldest lobster trapper in Maine, and maybe even the world. Virginia Oliver is 102, and began catching lobsters off Rockland’s coast when she was a little girl. People all over the country think Virginia is brave and strong, but Ginny, as her friends call her, knows the secret to staying young is doing what you love. People often ask Ginny when she plans to stop lobstering. She smiles and tells them, “When I die,” as stated in a news release.

The Jefferson Market & General Store is located 242 Waldoboro Road in Jefferson.
