    Did you have a great time at the lizard-themed Nature Detective Workshops for Kids this summer or just want to know more about lizards? Everyone is invited to meet children's author and lizard expert, Marta Magellan. In this free, interactive program about lizards, learn more about her book, Those Lively Lizards, and become lizard experts. Marta will be selling copies of her book, donating 10% of the proceeds to our library, and raffling two copies of the book.

The British authors ruled during this time with Agatha Christie, "the queen of mystery" and Dorothy L. Sayers as two of the best known.
