Julie Zickefoose speaks! Columbus, 12/12

Julie Zickefoose, author, blogger, and in-demand speaker holds one of her beloved bluebirds. That'd be hubby Bill Thompson to the rear, threatening to go all Ozzy on the cute little thrush.

Next Monday evening, December 12 at 7:30 pm, right here in Ohio's capital city of Columbus, Julie Zickefoose will be speaking to the Columbus Natural History Society. YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS THIS. If you live anywhere within an 83 km radius or even farther, you'll want to make the drive in.

Julie's talk is entitled "Rooted in Appalachia", and it's a brand spanking new program. Bill & Julie dwell on an 80-acre slice of Appalachia, high on a Washington County ridge, and their property and surrounding lands abound with interesting flora and fauna. Julie studies, paints, and photographs all of it, so we can expect a richly illustrated and interesting virtual foray into the natural world that she occupies. I am especially looking forward to this talk, as I have been all over their property and can attest firsthand to its many natural charms.

This is Julie's book, Letters from Eden, and I'm sure they'll be available at the program (her next book will be out soon!).

Be there or be square! The meeting is held in the auditorium at the Ohio State University's Museum of Biological Diversity, 1315 Kinnear Road, Columbus. Doors open at 7:00 pm.

Awww, man! Thank you!! Heard you packed the Black River Audubon hall past bursting last night. Nice pic of Bill about to have some bluebird pie. Dude!
I have to laugh--CNHS mailings are telling members to bring their own chairs on Tuesday night. That, I gotta see.

Doubt I'll bring my own chair, but will make every effort to be there. I'll stand, slouch, sit on the floor, whatever. Bluebirds probably taste good. I'll never know. I only eat invasive, non-indigenous species.

Yes he did pack Black River Audubon's talk - we stood but it was well worth it (smile face)!
