I and about a dozen other local author's are participating in the BTA's Author's Day this Saturday, December 6th, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Come on out - we will be discussing and selling our books (books are also available at the BTA store).
Anyone who hikes desert trails - or putters around their yard - has pondered this question: "what critter made that little hole in the ground?" Tourguides who lead our nature walks field that question often; Saturday, Dec. 6, brings your chance to hear answers from the naturalist who quite literally "wrote the book" about desert holes: Pinau Merlin. The Tucson writer is among featured authors during an all-day festival of authors and books; dozens of authors will be there - several are leading walks, lectures and chances to learn first-hand about subjects ranging from birdwatching (a 9am guided walk guided by Jim Burns), to a 'Desert Holes' guided walk at 1pm with Pinau. There will be readings of kids' books - and even a special walk for photographers at 3:00pm with author Colleen Miniuk-Sperry. Events are included with daily BTA admission of $10 for adults, $5 ages 5-12. Organized to showcase Arizona authors, the Saturday event will feature outdoor activities (readings & talks indoors, in the event of rain). Authors will sell their books - and be available for autographs.
A food vendor will be there for you to purchase lunch!
