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. Thank you to the Friends of the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library for generously sponsoring this author visit. This special author visit celebrates Viva Florida 500 and the Florida Library Youth Program's 2013 theme Dig Into Reading.
The Golden Age of Detective Fiction refers not only to the period of time (1913-1940), but the style of writing. The British authors ruled during this time with Agatha Christie, "the queen of mystery" and Dorothy L. Sayers as two of the best known. Read stories by a couple of Golden Age authors so we can compare/contrast writing styles.
