Sharks, skunks, lovelorn birds, and butt breathing frogs: Talking Nature with Suzan Bellincampi

On Tuesday December 11th at 7pm at Vineyard Haven Library, Suzan Bellincampi will give an illustrated talk based on her newest book, The Nature of Martha’s Vineyard. A book signing and refreshments will follow the talk.

The book is a gathering of the best of Suzan's nature columns over the last sixteen plus years and includes stunning full-color photographs by talented Island photographer Tim Johnson. Amphibians and reptiles, birds, fish, mammals, plants, sea life and more are covered, and share not only science, but history, art, and local lore. Island book publisher and consultant Jan Pogue calls this book, “a smashing retrospective of Suzan's Vineyard Gazette columns over the last almost two decades. Just wait until you read it.”

Suzan Bellincampi has spent 20 years on Martha’s Vineyard sharing nature through teaching, writing, and speaking.  She is Director of Mass Audubon’s Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary and writes the weekly All Outdoors column for the Vineyard Gazette.  Her first book, Martha’s Vineyard: A Field Guide to Island Nature was named one of the Best Books of New England by the Boston Globe in 2014.  Her latest book, The Nature of Martha’s Vineyard, is a retrospective of her best essays. She lives in West Tisbury with her bees and her honey in a home they built by hand.
