Local children’s author and naturalist Diane Lang visits the on Saturday, September 8 at 1:00 p.m. Lang is a familiar presence as a wildlife educator at Walnut Creek’s Lindsay Wildlife Museum and the Sulphur Creek Nature Center in Hayward.
Inspired by her work with all sorts of creatures – especially the often overlooked ugly, creepy, crawly sorts -- she has recently released her first book, Vulture Verses: Love Poems for the Unloved, a beautifully illustrated picture book that sings the praises of all those yucky but important animals that play such key roles in the natural world.
She will introduce her book and share her experiences both as a wildlife docent and a first-time children’s author. Meet her pet tarantula as well as a few other special wild animal friends! No registration is required for this free event, which is recommended for ages 5 and older.
Event co-sponsor will have Vulture Verses on hand for purchase and autographing.
