I went up to The Wild Bird Fund this afternoon and saw a poem about pigeons taped to a partition. It can be seen in the picture atop this entry. Supposedly the poet wrote it when she was only eight years old. Would love to meet her...
... and I think she'd enjoy my presentations re birds (that I've given at schools including International Academy of New York and Iona Preparatory School; as well as at New York Society for Ethical Culture AKA NYSEC).
In any event, my seeing her poem is somewhat of a confirmation that there is an audience for my message. At this time, there are a couple of people reaching out to schools on my behalf and I surely hope their efforts lead to bookings for me!
By the way, stories about The Wild Bird Fund as well as pigeons are featured in my book series, Words In Our Beak.
EACH OF THESE BOOKS CAN BE ORDERED FROM ANY PLACE SELLING BOOKS BY GIVING THEM THE TITLE OR MY NAME, PATRICIA YOUNGQUIST.
