    Do you plan on speaking in Denver CO?

  2. Joel says:

    I would love to but no venue has contacted me. If you know of any, please contact me at joelrgreenberg@gmail.com

  3. Your amazing book, THE ECHO OF THEIR WINGS has brought back a personal memory. My family lived in Arlington, VA from 1959-1962,while I was still in grade school,and we frequently visited the Smithsonian. Viewing the stuffed carcass of Martha was our introduction to the sad meaning of extinction.
    We missed your first visit to Massachusetts, but I wonder if you could come to speak at the Falmouth Public Library when you come back to speak at Plimoth(sic) Plantation in early September. If you look on a map, you will see that Falmouth is the first town over the Bourne Bridge, so it is not far out of the way. We have many, many bird enthusiasts here on the Cape, so I believe you would draw a big crowd.
    Our local independent bookstore, Eight Cousins can supply copies of your book for sale and signing. Please let us know what speaker’s fee you require, and if you can indeed come to visit us. Hoping to hear from you soon, Adrienne

    Thanks so much Adrienne for the kind words and for sharing the neat experience. I will get back to you about the possibility of speaking at the library. I take it you are affiliated with the library. If not please e-mail me at joelrgreenberg@gmail.com
