You were such a dynamic part of our Nature Detective Series in Ponte  Vedra … You have such knowledge of the subject and  have such a flair for presentation…it is quite a memory.

The  children were listening, enthusiastic, and engaged the whole time. I  love your book, ANOLE INVASION and will be sharing it with some nature  lovers I know!”

Children’s author, Marta Magellan, fascinated Pinecrest Library patrons while discussing her latest book, Anole Invasion. She informed the group about local invasive lizards and how to help the disappearing Anole creatures. Ms. Magellan had her huge crowd intrigued and eager to participate; her very informative presentation was a grand success!
