NC Author

What a treat for some 6th graders! NC eco-mystery author, Bonnie Doerr, was hosted by Love A Sea Turtle to share her writing inspirations with students as a part of our NC Science Festival events. The classes had read one of her books, Stake Out, prior to attending the active presentation and Mrs. Doerr read an excerpt from her soon-to-be-published book, Tangled Lines.
