Author Sharrol Frederick will be conducting a book signing at 7 p.m. on on April 23 at the First Baptist Church of Sherwood, 701 Country Club Road, Sherwood.

Frederick, a resident of Sherwood, will be available to sign copies of her book, Pickles Play Baseball.

"Are you different? Do kids make fun of you or pick on you?" said Frederick. "The Pickles are different like you and me. Lots of people don’t like pickles, but I do. Come learn about what true acceptance and loving someone who is different than you really means."
