April 11, 2019 – 7:30 pmMeeting Location:
Richardson Bay Audubon Center and Sanctuary in Tiburon. The address is 376 Greenwood Beach Road, Tiburon.South Africa and Botswana are home to 829 and 550 bird species, respectively. Jill will share some of the amazing birds she viewed while on safari in 2015, including shimmering blue starlings, multi-colored lilac rollers, and vibrant bee-eaters. It was on this trip when Jill learned that three rhinos are killed each day fueled by the demand for their horns in Asian black markets as ingredient for traditional medicine. If the current rate of poaching is not curtailed, wild rhinoceros could become extinct within the next few decades. But recent promising developments offer hope for the species. She will also talk about interesting conservation projects that she became involved in as a result of the publication of her coming-of-age suspense novel, Rhino in the Room, (signed copies available for purchase at the meeting).
Rhino in the Room wins an award is announced on the cover.
See page 11 for the BNP piece about my experience interviewing George RR Martin. My book review of Martin’s new novel, Fire & Blood is on page 12 and learn about senior pittie mix sweet Tyler on page 15.
Author Jill Hedgecock will read from her coming-of-age suspense novel, Rhino in the Room, on Sunday 12/16 at 4:00 pm at Flashlight Books at 1537 N Main St, Walnut Creek. Come check out her muse board and learn about her writing process. Her book was inspired by her 2015 visit to South Africa when she learned that 3 rhinos were poached every day for her horns. Jill also wrote the book because she noticed the limited availability of animal- and environmentally-related YA books and because she wanted to bring a safari experience to life for all ages. Jill has a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and a Master’s degree in Environmental Management. Come meet Jill as she reads from her debut novel at 4:00 pm with a book signing to follow and learn about rhinos.
So honored to have my novel included in the list of killer book list for the holidays:
