Author Bonnie J. Doerr’s made no secret of the fact that she’s a Carl Hiaasen fan. So how cool is it to walk into a bookstore and see her book face out, next to the likes of Hoot, Flush, and Scat. Talk about a thrill!
Even better, Bonnie isn’t just writing books about saving the environment, she’s doing something about it, too. Today she helped the wildlife center release pelicans. She’s on tour in Key West right now, so if you’re in the area, stop by to pick up a copy of her book, Island Sting. Visit the Key West Wildlife Center on Sunday, February 7, 2010 from 1-4 pm. You can not only meet Bonnie and get an autographed book, but proceeds from the books will be donated to the center.
Here’s Bonnie’s schedule if you’re lucky enough to get away to the Keys or if you live in the area:
February 4: US 1 Radio 104.1 FM Morning Magazine with Bill Becker 7:50 am
February 4: KONK AM 1680 AM “ECOcentricView” with Erika Biddle 2-3 pm
