Dreama Denver was married to late TV icon Bob Denver for three decades. Bob, of course, is remembered fondly to generations of fans as Gilligan, the hapless first mate shipwrecked on that tropical desert isle, and his fellow castaways on Gilligan’s Island.

“Gilligan’s Dreams: The Other Side of the Island” chronicles the behind-the-scenes stories of both the showbiz success and the behind-the-scenes family life of one of television’s most popular and enduring stars (the “Dreams” of “Gilligan’s Dreams” was Bob Denver’s loving nickname for Dreama).

“This is the journey of two imperfect people who fit perfectly together,” says Dreama. “Losing Bob was the most difficult thing I’ve ever faced, but his love left me stronger, more focused, and in the end, able to survive even when I thought I couldn’t. Being loved by this man was the greatest gift of my life, and this book is a window into our lives together!”

She will be signing books on the following dates and times at Park Expo and Conference Center, Charlotte, NC:
Friday, November 12 – 3:45 pm – 9:00 pm
Saturday, November 13 – 8:00 am to 8:00 pm
