HAGERSTOWN-After selling more than 294 million copies of her books and being named to Time magazine's list of the 100 most influential people in the world, author and Washington County resident Nora Roberts was immortalized Friday in Hagerstown.
During a brief ceremony at the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau, she was presented with a tiny bobblehead doll in her likeness by Will Smith, general manager of the Hagerstown Suns.
"It definitely has some of me in it," said Roberts, an avid baseball fan. "I feel like I've made it now. I feel like I'm the envy of all my writer friends."
The bobbleheads will be presented to the first 1,000 fans who attend the Suns' July 6 game against Delmarva. Roberts is scheduled to throw out the first pitch for the 7:05 p.m. game.
